Eid-al-Adha is an Islamic festival to remember Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son to God. It is observed around the 10th to the 13th days of the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah.
Once the crescent moon is sighted, the Ramadan month comes to an end and it is now the time for celebrations for Muslims. Eid-Ul-Fitr means to break the fast. Eid is the time to spread happiness, love, and triumph thereby creating enthusiasm among all the family members. On the Eid day Muslims wear new clothes and go for special prayer ceremonies in their nearby mosque to thank Allah by reciting various prayers and Eid-Ul-Fitr Dua’s. After the prayers there is a get together at Muslims houses for an Eid meal and to celebrate the occasion together. Muslim children have a joyful Eid Celebration as they get clothes, gifts and sweets from their relatives. Children also make special Eid greetings for their friends and decorate their houses in their special ways to enhance the beauty of the Eid Festival. Muslims greet each other by wishing Eid Mubarak to each other, which means Happy Eid!
