All people everywhere love a celebration, they might celebrate in different ways and on different days but it usually gives us the same feelings of excitement, joy and happiness.


Think about the last time you enjoyed a celebration...


This weekend Muslims all around the world will be celebrating Eid al-Fitr, it begins with the sighting of the new moon in Mecca so the date of this special celebration changes each year. It marks the end of the month long fasting of Ramadan, this is a time when some Muslims don't eat between dawn and sunset each day.


During Eid al-Fitr people like to gather with their families and friends, eat special food and give gifts to each other. This year it will be a different kind of celebration for lots of people as they can't meet with each other in the same way, and they won't be able to go to the Mosque to pray. If you know someone who is a Muslim and will be celebrating Eid al-Fitr you could make them a card or send them a message to say 'Eid Mubarak!' This means 'Have a blessed Eid!'

During Ramadan Muslims are encouraged to think about if they have been kind to other people in their family or community. They might think about how thoughtful, forgiving or generous they have been.


Can you think about something kind and helpful you could do for someone in your family today?

Can you think of all the kind things other people have done for you?


Eid al-Fitr is a time of great joy for Muslims, we can all look forward to celebrations in our own lives, when we can be with those we love and give thanks for the good things we enjoy.
