Eid is an Islamic festival that has been celebrated ever since it was founded by Muhammad the Prophet in 624CE. people tend to think of Eid as being one single celebration, but it is actually an umbrella term for two religious events which follow Ramadan.
These two smaller festivals are known as ‘Eid al-Fitr’ and ‘Eid al-Adha’. To make things easier, people often couple these Eid holidays together and refer to them simply as ‘Eid’. They are both different in their own right, though, and are observed to fulfil Islamic tradition.
The Eid holidays Eid AL Fitr and Eid Al Adha are the two longest holidays in the middle east and that fact has made it the most suitable for international vacations for many UAE & GCC residents and citizens to explore the vast corners of the world.
In 2022, the first of the two Eid holidays, Eid al-Fitr will begin in the evening on April 20th and will last all the way till April 23rd 2023. Eid al-Adha isn’t celebrated until a couple of months later and will begin this year on July, lasting for four days as well.
