The festival of Eid al-Fitr begins at sunset on the last night of Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting. It is a day of celebration, family, food and charity. Most people would have donated to charity throughout Ramadan but some donate at the end, especially to charities for children especially orphans and families in need. The day of Eid begins with communities coming together for prayers, to which people wear their finest new clothes. With it being the end of the fasting period, it is not surprising that food plays a big part in the celebrations, with communities getting together for huge feasts and the exchange of plates, often of homemade sweet dishes.
Traditionally “Eidi” was the gifting of money, but these days popular presents are toys, jewellery and gifts for the home.
