I already noted the beginning of the Hajj today, but as I prepare to break for the weekend I should note that ‘Id al-‘Adha will begin Sunday for my Muslim readers, so let me wish them ‘Id Mubarak.
UPDATE: Via Zeinobia: YouTube and the Saudis are broadcasting all the hajj rituals on a live feed YouTube channel here, called hajjlive. For us non-Muslims who will never see the hajj in person, it's a great window. In Arabic. Click the link or watch right here (at least till the end of this year's hajj):
