HOUSTON When `Eid Al-Fitr arrives, it brings with it a flurry. A dazzling array of colorful and distinctly ethnic garb, bright and bursting in the intense Houston, Texas, sun.

It brings with it a flurry of men, children and women in headscarves, those arranged securely and smugly in place, while others are draped clumsily over flowing hair, burdening their wearer.

The `Eid comes with a flurry of haste, as would-be worshippers hurry to their chosen mosque, often forced to weave their way through work-day traffic or, as is the case this year, amongst their fellow Houstonians out attending Sunday church services or in the full swing of weekend shopping.

Despite the more than 100 mosques in the Houston area, it seems never enough to serve the `Eid crush, with people forced to pray in cramped quarters and congregants often spilling outside of the designated prayer space...
