Eid al-Adha, also known as the Greater Eid or the Festival of Sacrifice, is an important Muslim festival lasting 3 days commemorating Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his only son Ishmael. It marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage, and is celebrated with visits to family and friends, a fine meal (usually lunch or a late breakfast), fine new clothes, and giving gifts or money to children.
