Eid al-Fitr

Muslims celebrate a three-day festival at the end of Ramadan called Eid-al-Fitr. Families buy new clothes, decorate their homes, and visit friends and relatives. Children receive gifts. Schools and businesses close for the holidays in Muslims countries.

Muslims in many countries, greet each other during the festival by saying, “Eid Mubarak,” which means “blessed festival.” They may send greeting cards to other Muslims.

Egg fighting is a traditional game in Afghanistan played during the celebration. Two people each hold a hardboiled egg. They bump the ends of their eggs together until one egg cracks. The holder of the egg that is not cracked wins.

Note: Citizens of Afghanistan who declare faith in Christ experience serious persecution. Go to www.prisoneralert.com and click on “released prisoners” to learn about Said Musa, a man in Afghanistan who was in prison for his faith in Christ.
