Also known as Id-ul-Fitr, this is celebrated by Muslims immediately after the holy month of Ramadan, in October-November. Some Muslims believe that the day marks the revelation of the Quran, their holy book.
During Ramadan, Muslims fast during the day, not even drinking water. The fast is broken only after sundown. On Id, everyone bathes in the morning, wears new clothes, applies perfume, and eats dates or some other sweet before going to the mosque for Id prayers. Men wear white clothes symbolising purity and austerity. Women prepare sweets like Sevian (vermicelli cooked in sweetened milk) and Shir Khurma (a special dish with milk and dates). Family elders give Idi, presents of money, to youngsters. Everyone is greeted with Id Mubarak (Happy Id). People go for Idmilans (meeting friends and relatives).
