Eid Around The World

We take a look at how Muslim communities around the world celebrate Eid Al Adha.

The holiday sheep around the world dread the most is here. We're all excited about cashing in our 3edeya and driving off to Gouna or Sahl Hasheesh to celebrate the holy holiday in style. But while we're off partying on the beach, the rest of the world is also celebrating Eid though they might actually remember their celebrations, as they'll probably lack tequila shots and electronic music. Since there's always an abundance of Ka3ba photos circulating during this time of year, we decided to show you how the rest of the world does Eid.
