Eid Mubarak to all of you in Advance. Hope this Eid will bring peace and hapiness in the world.
The two main Muslim festivals are Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Azha. Eid-ul-Fitr is observed after the end of the month of Ramadan.

Like other years, Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated in Bangladesh with great devotion next Friday or Saturday subject to appearence of Moon. Everyone tries to dress well and prepares special dishes according to their ability on this day. Relatives and neighbours also share the joys of this festival with each other.
Eid fairs are organized at many villages. Handicraft items and foodstuffs such as chira, muri, khai, manda and sweets are sold in the fairs. Nakshi pankha, dolls, decorated pottery as well as musical instruments such as flute, drum, ektara are also sold.

During the Eid day all Muslims join Eid prayer in the morning and Its mandatory. In Bangladesh all Religious community enjoy their festival like Christmas, Durga Puja, Buddu Purnima and Eid as Government declared vacation. But I dont know American System. We should attend our morning Eid prayer. If it will be in the Wednesday I am not able to join my class. There should be vacation for muslim student for Eid Festival.
First time for me to observe Eid out of my country and family members. I miss them all.
