Opinion: Letter to the Editor: Why I Celebrate Eid

Eid-ul-Fitr is an Islamic holiday which marks the end of the month of fasting, Ramadan. Muslims celebrate Eid by spending time with family and friends, eating good food and exchanging gifts.

I like Eid because I get a lot of presents from my family and friends and I get to wear new clothes. The prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) told us that on Eid we should take a bath, wear new clothes or our best clothes, and wear perfume.

On Eid day I wear my new clothes and go to the mosque for Eid prayer, After the prayer I meet my friends and wish them “Eid Mubarak,” which means blessed Eid. My favorite part of the day is when I open all my Eid presents, play games with my cousins and eat delicious food with my family.
