Eid or Eid ul-Fitr is an Arabic word where Eid stand for "festivity" and Fitr means "to break the fast". Eid ul-Fitr starts the day after Ramadan ends, and is verified by the sighting of the new moon.
The Muslims celebrate this day by donating money to the poor and the needy. They wear their best cloths. This festivity lasts for three days. On this day typically a Muslim family wakes up early, prays and then eats the breakfast indicating the end of Ramadan. Then they go to mosques to pray. After the prayers the worshippers embrace eachother saying Eid Mubarak to share the spirit of love and the festivity. People usually visit the house of their relatives and friends to thank God for all blessings, they spend time socializing with extended family and community, visiting the sick and offering prayers for the deceased. For those who fasted during the month of Ramadan, there is a sense of triumph and accomplishment. This holiday is so important that many Muslims in the U.S. take a day off from work or school to celebrate with their families. The air of festivity and celebration can be felt on the eve before Eid when frenzied shopping and Eid preparations are at its height. Since Eid is celebrated with gift-giving, the highly decorated shops and markets are open till late at night for last minute shoppers. On the eve before Eid, women and children get together to decorate their hands with henna, (in the south Asian subcontinent this evening is also known as "chand raat". "Chand" means moon and "raat" means night. The evening when Eid is confirmed for the following day, with the sighting of the crescent moon indicating the start of festivities). Staying up late preparing food for the next day, the whole house is a hub of activity and excitement.

I could hardly wait for the night to be over since I was just uncomfortable,” she added.
