hi i am a muslim my favorite day is eid al fitr we play pray to allah i am a maldivian most maldivians are muslims so they celebrate them very colourfully

It is also very important to know about Eid Al Fitr, because it tell us a bit of how Islamic people use to live.

I realy like this !!!!

is cool and awasome

  1.  the favorite day of the year is CHRISTMAS. On this day kids wear the new clothes and then go to church.the
  2. houses are decorated in glittery ribbons (usually in red white or green) and special trees called christmas trees are decorated with lights and colorful balls with a pretty star or angel right at the top.

  3. at the bottom of the tree something very special is placed- the crib.the crib is baby jesus and mother mary and joseph and the shepherds and the animals.after the kids greet each other children rush to see what present they got which is kept under the tree.

 A important festival of VietNam is The Lunar New Year.It happens at the beginning of year.On those days, one special food mustn't be lacking in "Banh Chưng".Children usually get money and new clothes. People decorate their house,then go out. All people is very happy and they pray for a success new year.
