My Favourite Day - Eid al Fitr

 

Eid al-fitr is an Islamic festival. It takes place at the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting when people don't eat and drink during the day.

Listen to a girl from Egypt tell us about Eid al-fitr in her country, and why it's her favourite festival. You can also light some firecrackers!

  1.  the favorite day of the year is CHRISTMAS. On this day kids wear the new clothes and then go to church.the
  2. houses are decorated in glittery ribbons (usually in red white or green) and special trees called christmas trees are decorated with lights and colorful balls with a pretty star or angel right at the top.

  3. at the bottom of the tree something very special is placed- the crib.the crib is baby jesus and mother mary and joseph and the shepherds and the animals.after the kids greet each other children rush to see what present they got which is kept under the tree.
