Finally the holy month of Ramadan ended and after 30 days of fasting the Muslims all over the world are now celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr. Eid is an Arabic word meaning “festivity,” while Fiṭr means “breaking (the fast) so this EID marks the end of the month of fasting which is Ramadan. This year had been tough for me and my family but the good news of Eid do always take away all the worries within us. It’s a day when we meet our closest ones, receive guests, server them with the best of our hospitality and we hug one another giving greetings of love and brotherhood. In my country we often call this Eid the “Chotti Eid”. Because children are often the luckiest in these Holidays because they get gifts in the form of cash. Children are given small sums of money by adult relatives or friends(eidi). Some lucky champs do even collect a whole sum amount up to $100. :p
The day starts with prayers and after the prayers, we visit our relatives, friends and acquaintances or hold large communal celebrations in homes or rented halls.It is forbidden to fast on the day of EID so we celebrate this day with sweets, dishes and cultural food stuff. It is a great event where we meet one another after months and spend some happy hours together.
I wish all my beloved friends and readers Happy Eid Holidays and the happiest of moments. May peace and blessings be on you and your family. Shed all your worries during this festival and hug everyone around. Trash out hatred and remove all misconceptions if any between yourself and others. Forgive all for their mistakes and mark the beginning of a new life. For this is Eid where there should exist nothing but love and brotherhood. Wishing you just love, peace and success. God bless us all! 😀
