Every culture and society around the world has some specific events and festivals which are celebrated by the people with full zeal and zest.
In Pakistan, the Islamic and cultural festivals are celebrated by the people in their true colors. There are the numbers of festivals which present true picture of Pakistani culture and Eid is one of those festivals. Muslims all around the world celebrate Eid-ul-Adha and Eid-ul-Fitr and same is done in Pakistan.
Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated when the Holy month of Ramadan comes to an end. Even before the start of Ramadan the excitement of Eid among people can be seen everywhere.
On Eid day, the start of the day is with the different type of sweet puddings and dishes like vermicelli, Kheer, Ras Malai etc. after that, males go to Eid prayers and after that they greet Eid to each other.
For children Eid-ul-Fitr is a source of a special prayer because they collect Eidis from their elders and spend on different eatables. And have a lot of fun.
In Eid days, all the picnic spots and parks seem filled with the laughter of the people. Eid –ul-Fitr is also known as “Sweet Eid” and it is considered to be a sweet award from Almighty Allah for his people after having fast the whole month of Ramadan.
In Eid holidays people take full advantage of the time they get from their busy lives and everybody plans some parties at home or otherwise people go for outing and meet their relatives.
Eid-ul-Fitr brings a joyful time when old disputes and clashes are forgotten and people forgive each other’s mistakes and embrace each other.
Eid-ul-Fitr comes after the Holy month of Ramadan which gives Muslims a lesson that in Eid joys they have to also think of those poor Muslims who cannot afford to celebrate Eid. So people also give those alms and charity money so that they could also taste the sweetness of the sweet Eid-ul-Fitr.
