Eid Al-Adha, Sweets – 2009

Dimah - - Eid Al-Adha, Sweets 1

The preparations for Eid Al-Adha are similar to Eid Al-Fitr, and the only difference between Eid Al-Adha and Eid Al-Fitr is that during the celebration of Eid al-Adha, Muslims commemorate and remember Abraham’s trials, by themselves slaughtering an animal such as a sheep, cow, goat or camel.

In both Eids, sweets are prepared, we buy new clothes, and visit our relatives, and there is something called “E’idiyeh” it is some money given by old members of the family to the younger ones as a gift in Eid (Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha), my father and my uncles give me “E’idiyeh” each Eid (Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha).

This is our table in Eid Al-Adha.
