It depends on which Eid you are talking about. Eid Al-Fitr comes after Ramadan, the holy month of fasting. Muslims have a small breakfast and then gather to pray Salah tul-Eid…. Then, the usually go to many get togethers and just have fun and enjoy themselves. Eid Al-Adha is celebrated in a slightly different way. After praying Salah tul-Eid, the men go (woman can go too, but they usually stay at home) and slaughter a goat, sheep, cow, chicken, etc. They may cook it that day, or keep it for later. Some give a portion of the meat as charity. Then everyone celebrates and has a good time. In both Eids, most people wear new and beautiful clothes. They exchange gifts, especially in Eid Al-Fitr. Women will cook delicious foods, and everyone stays in a good mood. InshaAllah this will help 1. Eid -ul Fitar: Ist of Shawal (10th month of Hijra calendar). It is celebrated as thanks giving to Almighty Allah for blessing the Muslims with the sacred month of Ramadhan in which they fasted and and did extra worship to win His pleasure. The Muslims take bath, put on neat and neat dress, eat some sweet dish and go to Eid Gah (special mosque) to offer Eid Prayer. They also exchange gifts. It is an occasion of forgivrness and making peace. The poor are also helped with food and charity. The Muslims don't indulge in merry making. They thank Almighty Allah. 2. Eid-ul-Azha: 10th of the 12th month. Celebrated in the memory of Hazrat Abraham's nearly sacrifice of his son Hazrat Ismaiel (AS). The Muslims offer Eid prayer, thank Almighty Allah and offer animal sacrifice. It is also the next day of the chief ritual of Hajj- The Day of Arfa. (MORE)

Eid al-Fitr falls on the first day of Shawwal, the month which follows Ramadan in the Islamic calendar. It is a time to give in charity to those in need, and celebrate with fa…mily and friends the completion of a month of blessings and joy. .
Before the day of Eid, during the last few days of Ramadan, each Muslim family gives a determined amount as a donation to the poor. This donation is of actual food -- rice, barley, dates, rice, etc. -- to ensure that the needy can have a holiday meal and participate in the celebration. This donation is known as sadaqah al-fitr (charity of fast-breaking). .
On the day of Eid, Muslims gather early in the morning in outdoor locations or mosques to perform the Eid prayer. This consists of a sermon followed by a short congregational prayer. .
After the Eid prayer, Muslims usually scatter to visit various family and friends, give gifts (especially to children), and make phone calls to distant relatives to give well-wishes for the holiday. These activities traditionally continue for three days. In most Muslim countries, the entire 3-day period is an official government/school holiday. .
During the Hajj, Muslims remember and commemorate the trials and triumphs of the Prophet Abraham. The Qur'an describes Abraham as follows: .
"Surely Abraham was an example, obedient to Allah, by nature upright, and he was not of the polytheists. He was grateful for Our bounties. We chose him and guided him unto a right path. We gave him good in this world, and in the next he will most surely be among the righteous." (Qur'an 16:120-121) .
One of Abraham's main trials was to face the command of Allah to kill his only son. Upon hearing this command, he prepared to submit to Allah's will. When he was all prepared to do it, Allah revealed to him that his "sacrifice" had already been fulfilled. He had shown that his love for his Lord superceded all others, that he would lay down his own life or the lives of those dear to him in order to submit to God. Why do Muslims sacrifice an animal on this day? .
During the celebration of Eid al-Adha, Muslims commemorate and remember Abraham's trials, by themselves slaughtering an animal such as a sheep, camel, or goat. This action is very often misunderstood by those outside the faith. .
Allah has given us power over animals and allowed us to eat meat, but only if we pronounce His name at the solemn act of taking life. Muslims slaughter animals in the same way throughout the year. By saying the name of Allah at the time of slaughter, we are reminded that life is sacred. .
The meat from the sacrifice of Eid al-Adha is mostly given away to others. One-third is eaten by immediate family and relatives, one-third is given away to friends, and one-third is donated to the poor. The act symbolizes our willingness to give up things that are of benefit to us or close to our hearts, in order to follow Allah's commands. It also symbolizes our willingness to give up some of our own bounties, in order to strengthen ties of friendship and help those who are in need. We recognize that all blessings come from Allah, and we should open our hearts and share with others. .
It is very important to understand that the sacrifice itself, as practiced by Muslims, has nothing to do with atoning for our sins or using the blood to wash ourselves from sin. This is a misunderstanding by those of previous generations: "It is not their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches Him." (Qur'an 22:37) .
The symbolism is in the attitude - a willingness to make sacrifices in our lives in order to stay on the Straight Path. Each of us makes small sacrifices, giving up things that are fun or important to us. A true Muslim, one who submits his or herself completely to the Lord, is willing to follow Allah's commands completely and obediently. It is this strength of heart, purity in faith, and willing obedience that our Lord desires from us. What else do Muslims do to celebrate the holiday? .
On the first morning of Eid al-Adha, Muslims around the world attend morning prayers at their local mosques. Prayers are followed by visits with family and friends, and the exchange of greetings and gifts. At some point, members of the family will visit a local farm or otherwise will make arrangements for the slaughter of an animal. The meat is distributed during the days of the holiday or shortly thereafter. (MORE)
