The preparations for Eid Al-Adha are similar to Eid Al-Fitr, and the only difference between Eid Al-Adha and Eid Al-Fitr is that during the celebration of Eid al-Adha, Muslims commemorate and remember Abraham’s trials, by themselves slaughtering an animal such as a sheep, cow, goat or camel.

In both Eids, sweets are prepared, we buy new clothes, and visit our relatives, and there is something called “E’idiyeh” it is some money given by old members of the family to the younger ones as a gift in Eid (Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha), my father and my uncles give me “E’idiyeh” each Eid (Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha).

This is our table in Eid Al-Adha.

Above: Knafeh Ballouriyeh, it is prepared from Knafeh and Pistachio filling.

In a baking sheet, they put a layer of Knafeh, then add the filling which is coarsely chopped pistachio mixed with sugar and orange blossom water, then another layer of Knafeh to cover the filling, then pour over it melted ghee, and bake it in the oven but make sure that the Knafeh color doesn’t change, the color should remain white, then remove it from oven and add to it sugar syrup mixed with orange blossom water

The name “Ballouriyeh” came from the word “Ballour” which is in English “Glass”, so the color of Knafeh is like the color of glass (Ballour) and should not change during baking.
