Muslim mom creates Ramadan 'Christmas tree' in crescent moon shape

Inspired by the Christmas tree, a Muslim mom started making crescent moon shapes out of artificial trees, bending them into the Islamic symbol and decorating them with lights.

The trees are intended to help celebrate Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic year, which is marked by a month of fasting and commemorates when the Quran was revealed to Mohammad in Muslim tradition.

“Obviously, Ramadan’s important,” Baydoun Bazzi told the Detroit Free Press. “You gotta pray and fast, and you want to become closer to your creator. But I never as a kid felt like there was any decorations or like a celebration. I wanted something exciting.”

What do you think of the Muslim version of a Christmas tree? Doc wasn't offended, but he couldn't help noticing that a crescent shape on a stand sets you up for a great "Arrested Development" reference.
