Preparations for Eid-ul-Fitr & traditions of Afghanistan people
 Muslims have two religious celebration days and that are Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Azha. From all over the world Muslims celebrate both days with their family members, friends and neighboring people. 
The people of Afghanistan start preparation for Eid 15 days prior to Eid.
 Eid-ul-Fitr is marked in Afghanistan with particular traditions and customs as other Muslim countries of the world. The celebration of Eid differs from time to time, from place to place and from family to family and tribe to tribe in Afghanistan. 
Preparations for celebration of this day which is considered as one of the two key Eids begin by going to markets and buying foodstuffs, clothes and necessary things as shoes, dishes. Moreover, most of families follow their traditions as cleaning homes, buying furniture and new carpets, rugs and other for their homes, buying cookies, candies and others in order to better hospitalize their close relatives, neighbors and friends during the Eid days. 
Related to celebration of Eid days and traditions of the people in Afghanistan, Bilgis Hadia has told The Kabul Times correspondent, “The people of Afghanistan have different customs and traditions as they belong to different tribes in the country, but in Kabul the people in particular women first start cleaning their homes, washing carpets, buying clothes, foodstuffs and dried fruits as pistachio, almond, raisin, pea and others to better welcome guests on Eid days. On night before Eid, families usually cook good food and dishes, while the young girls and children gather together and apply henna to each other’s hands, painting flowers and other designs”. 
“The Muslim people of Afghanistan as other Islamic countries begin Eid-al-Fitr by going to mosques and worshiping. On first day of Eid, most of men and a number of women go to mosques to perform Eid prayer. After performing the Eid prayer, they return their homes and say to each member of their families a Happy Eid Day”, Bilgis said.  
In the first day after the Eid prayer rituals most of the people visit their nearest relatives and friends and mark the day together and those who are engaged will to their father-in-law’s home and visit their fiancés and spend time with the whole members of the family.
Also on the second day and third days of Eid, the people continue visiting their loves ones.  Generally, Eid is very special for children because they collect money as Eidi from their parents and elder people. 
Some youth usually decide to go to picnic and parks with their friends in order to double their happiness of the Eid. 
So, generally Eid is celebrated in a very peaceful environment with love around the country.
