Information on poster:
Eid usually starts with Muslims going to the Mosque for prayers, dressed in their best clothes, and thanking Allah for all the blessings they have received.
The high point of the day is a large feast, where families come together and share meat among friends, neighbours and the poor. In some Muslim traditions, gifts are also given to children.
Eid al-Adha is celebrated on the last day of the Hajj each year. The Hajj is a holy pilgrimage that millions of Muslims make to Mecca every year. They tell Allah what they are thinking and hope for him to help them, as well as remembering Ibrahim and Ishmael’s courage and devotion to God. Muslims the world over are encouraged to make a pilgrimage to Mecca and celebrate.
