Celebrating Eid!

How do people celebrate Eid?
Some Eid traditions include dressing up, snacking on some dates, exchanging gifts, helping others and heading to a mosque for special prayers just after dawn. Afterward, it’s recommended to take an alternative route home than the one you took to the mosque, with the idea of spreading joy and riches everywhere you go and to the most people possible.
