Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Eid Mubarak

The Muslims celebrated Eid this Monday. Unlike other holidays, it comes at different times of the year once a year. It is celebrated after Ramadan, the month of fasting in which Muslims don’t eat anything from dawn to dusk.

Eid is celebrated to give thanks to Allah (the Muslims’ God) for us being able to fast the entire 29 or 30 days. On the morning of Eid, Muslims pray special prayers. Before Eid, Muslims give Fitra (charity) to the poor and needy so they can celebrate Eid as well. Elders give Eidi (or money) and gifts to children.

On Eid, Muslims eat lots of sweets and desserts.
