Eid El-Fitr

Tomorrow, the majority of Muslim countries will celebrate Eid el-Fitr, marking the completion of the Holy month of Ramadhan.There is a wide range of customs and traditions that mark the Eid el-Fitr celebrations in various countries in North Africa, the Middle and Far East and even in the Pacific, but in general it is looked upon as a day of family, rather than public celebration. The day always starts with special Eid prayers at the main mosque (also attended by the women in some countries), followed later in the day by a large celebratory lunch at the house of the senior member of the family. Everywhere children receive gifts of cash and new clothes. For all the Muslims around the world I wish them Eid Mubarek!
