Eid Al-Fitr Every country has some days which are celebrated by people, and they are called festivals.In fact, most festival days in the world come from religion.In Saudi Arabia, Saudi people celebrate in Eid Al-Fitr, which comes after month of Ramadan, which is the Muslims fasting.
Indeed, people usually dress new clothes, do some celebration in the morning, and eat special food. First of all, as every festival in the world ,people wear traditional clothes .
For example, in Saudi Arabia men wear thoub which is white length, loose garment with long sleeved , and they wear a square shaped cotton, and it is folded diagonally to from a triangular shape in their head called ghutra. Also, old women wear gold and darraa which is same as thoub but it has a lot of decoration, but the young women follow the fashion, so they wear modern clothes. I personally prefer to wear modern clothes such as: dress, skirt, pants and blouse. In fact, every one buys new clothes, even rich or poor people. Secondly, people prepare for the next day that is Eid Al-Fitr .
In the morning women and men go to the mosque, for they pray and listen to the speech of the Imam. After that, they greet each other warmly from person to the next person. Also, they exchange greetings by hugging each other, shaking hands and passing blessing. Then, every family visits each other. For example, in my family, my father and my brothers go to my grandfather`s house to meet all my uncles and their children in the morning. However the women meet each other in the afternoon because they need a lot of times to prepare themselves.
Also, every family gives the children money as a gift or some candy that’s called bonus. In addition, food is very important in every festival, but Saudi Arabia does not have special dishes in Eid Al-Fitr. Indeed, the most important meal in Eid Al-Fitr is breakfast because people did not eat breakfast all month of Ramadan. So, some families such as my family make breakfast in the street and all the neighbors share the food together. Also, every family should prepare one or more dishes. Usually they make a lot of desserts such as: baklava, coffee cake and kunafa.
In conclusion, any culture has one or more festival days, and the most important festival in Saudi Arabia is Eid Al-Fitr which comes once a year. Indeed, Eid Al-Fitr comes from Islam religion. Also, the first person who celebrated Eid Al-Fitr was Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon him) with his family and his friends after first Ramadan in the Islamic calendar. Also, he urged the people to wear new clothes and meet each other in that day. I think Eid Al-Fitr is wonderful day because every person becomes happy at the end of the day.
