WESTLAND, Mich. – Holidays, festivals and religious observances are a time to decorate one’s home, wear festive clothing and serve special foods, but for years when it comes to Ramadan, finding celebratory items to buy has been a challenge in many parts of the United States – even in places like Michigan with large Muslim populations.“Growing up in America, these types of things were just not available. We weren’t able to have these decors and these celebrations of our heritage and our culture and our religion,” said Fardusee Jaigirdar, co-founder of an all-women-owned collaborative event-planning and décor business.
