Eid-El-Feter is a holy fist that we celebrate by having money and invitations but espaciely praying and asking ALLAH for forgivnence. After fasting the whole Ramadhan month, we have a pause called Eid-el-Feter which is the first day of Shawwal  within we must eat normally and give money to poor people and pray.It's a relegious event and it's so important.

Eid- ul-fitr is an Islamic festival. It takes place at the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting when people don't eat and drink during the day.

 I am not Muslim. But I know a little bit about Eid Al Fitr. Thai people called it Wan Tue Seen Ooat.
My favorite day is Songkran day. Songkran is a Thai traditional New Year which starts on April 13 every year and lasts for 3 days.  Songkran festival on April 13 is Maha Songkran Day or the day to mark the end of the old year, April 14 is Wan Nao which is the day after and April 15 is Wan Thaloeng Sok which the New Year begins. 
            Songkran means “movement” or “changing” since according to Thai astrology, the sun will move into a new sign of the Zodiac on this day.  Songkran is also called the “Water Festival”.  Water is believed to flow and wash away all bad omens during this time.  Thus, it is a time for cleaning; houses, villages, temples and spirit houses.      
            In the Thai tradition, the New Year begins early in the morning when faithful Thai Buddhists give alms to Buddhist monks.  After that, they release caged animals, especially birds and fish.  Elders and parents will be visited and respected by their children and grandchildren.  The young pour scented water over their elder’s hands, they in return, wish them good health, happiness and prosperity.  This tradition of paying respect, is called “Rod Nam Dam Hua”
