On this day, Muslims all around, visit their relatives and friends to wish “Eid Mubarak” or host Eid celebrations at their homes or community centers. Delicacies like Biryani, Haleem, Nalli Nihari, Seviyan, Mutton Kaleji and different kinds of kebabs are cooked at every Muslim household. Young girls and women don shararas or fancy salwar suits and team it it with a headscarf, called a hijab while men and little boys sport traditional kurta pajama. Eidi is usually given to the children of the household in the form of a gift or money. It is a tradition to keep the spirit of the celebration alive among children.
