Yaar.. I never realized this till I moved out (and actually cried one time) but my family used to have lamb chops and doodh savaiyein (Pakistani dessert) post eid-namaz tradition for as long as I can rmr. Turns out it’s not an islamic or Pakistani thing.. it’s a ‘my mom’ thing. I miss her sooo much.

Have a cute, subtle food based tradition. No one will complain and only love you more! Also just realizing how the lamb chops were my elder brothers fav (eldest son 🙄).. definitely the reason why she chose that and why he was always excited about eid namaz lol

Eid family photo, at that age it doesn't really make a difference but I would just go to the local masjid festival. I also make goodie bags for all the kids that we know and let my kids hand them out.

If you have friends or other family in the area, get together! I grew up without much extended family nearby but my parents would always throw a party at home for the other Muslims we knew in the area. All the feasting and time with friends makes Eid really special. Plus do gifts and a family photo!

Eid stockings? Decorate a palm tree? After eid prayer gift unwrapping? Baking did theme treats? Singing did songs/carols? Wearing new clothes? Giving charity in a fun way? Giving gifts to friends and family?

That was a lot of question marks. Great ideas, already planning some of them. Also thinking more in terms of activities outside of the home - post Eid prayer rituals

Chuckie Cheese was always a favorite of mine. Also making candy bags to hand out at the prayers was a good time!

Eid prayer, brunch, nap, some sort of arcade or theme park, dinner. How old is your kid

2.5 years old

In our masjid the night before Eid, one uncle brings loads of candies and does a candy toss every year. Kids go crazy and have tons of fun collecting.
