"At the end of fasting month of Ramadan, Muslims throughout the world observe a three-day celebration called Eid al-Fitr (Festival of Fast-Breaking) which is a joyous occasion, similar to Christmas in its celebration, but with strong religious significance. The giving of a special charity for this occasion is obligatory. Muslims dress in holiday attire, attend a special community prayer in the morning, and visit friends and relatives. Greetings of "'Eid Mubarak," or " Blessed Eid" are exchanged. In some places, children are given gifts or money by their parents and relatives."
