Asha, a 16-year-old Somali refugee, writes: (We decorate) when it's holiday - Eid and weddings. We take the cow poop from the Somali (side of the neighborhood) where they have cows. We go home and take soil and put it together with the cow poop. And we have some colors - red, yellow, black and white. We draw flowers or a tree outside on the wall (of the house). When it dries it doesn't smell. When it rains it comes off. (In the U.S.) we decorate (for Eid), but it's inside with cloth."
