As you all are well aware of the importance of cultural days and when they are holidays or can have interesting and enthusiastic vibes for celebrating them. As I am a proud citizen of Pakistan so let me show you what sort of celebrations we love to do on the cultural holiday.
We call it Eid. Generally, we celebrate two Eid in each Islamic year and both have great religious and cultural importance. So I am giving a general overview of this Eid festival.

Eid is the event when there is a national holiday in the country. People who are working far from their homes come to their homes to visit this festive event.

Family gatherings are being held for celebration. Before Eid Ul Fitr all Muslims practice fasting for a month on this occasion, generally sweet dishes are being made for the celebration.
While on Eid Ul Adha, sacrifices of animals are being done in the remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim (A.S).

-Family gathering;
I don't have all the members of my family with me so I wait for this festival so that they should come to visit me. Can't tell you how much fun I have with my brothers and grandparents. Sometimes I wish each day of the year should be celebrated just like this.

Through Fitrana, distribution of money is done and each member of the family has to pay a specific amount of money. Which is then distributed to the poor and needy people. Also, meat is being given to such people who haven't sacrificed so that they should also enjoy good food.
