Eid ul-Fitr is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during Ramadan. The day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of Shawwal. This is typically a joyous celebration for Muslims, and the traditions observed around Eid ul-Fitr often involve spreading greetings with family members, friends, and neighbors.
Eid ul-Fitr is an important religious holiday in Afghanistan as well. Many Afghans observe the day by praying in public spaces or at mosques, wearing new clothes, with special sweets gifted to loved ones. Families often gather together to celebrate, sharing meals and exchanging gifts.
In Afghanistan, people celebrate Eid ul-Fitr by congratulating each other on the occasion of Eid, giving out sweets and small gifts, preparing special meals and decorating their homes.
Different cities in Afghanistan have different ways of celebrating Eid. For instance, in Kabul people gather at the mosque for prayer early in the morning before visiting relatives or friends. In Herat, on the other hand, people first visit relatives and friends before going to the mosque.
In all cities, however, people make an effort to dress up in their best clothes for Eid. Women wear brightly coloured dresses and headscarves and men often wear traditional Afghan clothing such as a kameez shalwar or sherwani.
