Story Summary

A tradition in Nadia's home is to stop for donuts every Eid on the way to prayers. But this year Nadia's mother is sick and it is Nadia's turn to stay home. Feeling none of the joy of a normal Eid, Nadia decides she can at least buy donuts from Mr. Laidlaw's bakery as a surprise for her family when they return from prayers. Unfortunately, her six donuts aren't enough for all the relatives that show up. That is until Mr. Laidlaw himself shows up with a whole box of his new Eid special donuts, Cinnamon Chai.
