There are two great religious festivals in Islam, Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha. Eid Al-Fitr comes after a whole month of fasting (Ramadan) and Eid Al-Adha comes a few months after Eid Al-Fitr.
Eid Al-Adha “Festival of Sacrifice” or “Greater Eid”, Eid Al-Adha annually falls on the 10th day of the month of Dhul Hijja of the lunar Islamic calendar. The festivities last for three days or more depending on the country. Eid Al-Adha occurs the day after the pilgrims conducting Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia by Muslims worldwide, descend from Mount Arafat.
Today is the first day of Eid Al-Adha, I’ll enjoy Eid and will soon write about the sweets I prepared for Eid.
Happy Eid, Eid Mubarak, Kul A’am Wa Anotum Bi-Khair :)
