It is part of the religion and culture of Muslim people and we celebrate fasting for a month. The big Eid is 2 months after the small Eid and its the time were people go to Mecca for Hajj. It starts a long time ago with our prophet Ibrahim. In the first day of Eid we shower and clean everything. We make everything clean and smells good with incent. We go to the mosque and pray together. We also wear new cloths and we visit people we know and wish them happy Eid we give them money as gifts. In lunch time we sacrifice a lamb and the whole family eats together a big meal and we give to poor people who don’t have food. Than in the afternoon the woman get together with family and friends and the men get together with the men in family and community and they socialize and have fun.
