On the day of Eid al-Fitr the fasting is over and Muslims often celebrate with a big feast.

I am celebrating Eid today in Algeria, we come every year for Ramadan and it is always roasting! We always get visitors and I fasted ten days this year. I didn't have to fast any days but I wanted to. In the morning there is a big prayer and then we just eat a lot and get presents from the adults.
