Eid Mubarik !!!

I am away , for Eid on sep11 with my family and relatives,will be back in a week.

 Eid Mubarak to all of Muslim community in every part of the world

 Eid ul-Fitr (Arabic: عيد الفطر ‘Īdu l-Fiṭr‎), often abbreviated to Eid, is a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm). Eid is an Arabic word meaning "festivity", while Fiṭr means "break-fasting"; and so the holiday symbolizes the celebration of break-fasting after completing the fasting of the entire month of Ramadan (calendar month). The first day of Eid, therfore, is the first day of the month Shawwal that comes after Ramadan.

I am mostly hyper and excited on chaand raat ,Chand Raat occurs the night before Eid day celebrations commence.
Dawn the next day is witness to families scurrying around in the hustle-bustle of decking themselves up for going out to Eid prayer at the local mosque or prayer ground. Water pumps roar into action after the pre-dawn Fajr prayer, as everyone wants to take a shower before wearing their special, new Eid clothes and shoes.

Many special sweet dishes are made this day , one of e special dishes made  isby mixing dates and milk, which is cooked till one-fourth of the original quantity is left in an open pan. Sheer Khurma is served along with sweet wheat noodles. Shops too are full of various sweets. Many sweetshop owners sell their special dishes. Most of these sweets consist of goat meat mixed with Khoya and khurma.

 Eid is an important event for Muslims. In the celebration of Eid, men, women and children need to look their best. People want to wear new dresses.
Girls wear  Mehndi (Henna) And Bangles (Choorian).

One of the main feature of Eid Celebrations in Pakistan is decor of Mendhi (or Mehndi)  by women of all ages. It is the application of Henna as a temporary form of skin decoration in South Asia,

Almost the entire day is spent visiting relatives, neighbors, and family friends. 

Have a safe , happy and beautiful Eid Day
