Though Eid may be celebrated differently in separate parts of the world, the day normally begins with a special Eid prayer held after the early morning prayers when the sun is out. It is very important to give Zakat-ul-Fitr before the Eid prayers which is giving alms to those in need. After the prayers, Muslims often visit friends and family bearing gifts and goodwill and may also get together over a meal.
