The festival of Eid is here and this means people will be busy offering prayer in mosques, visiting each other wearing new clothes and preparing delicacies at home. However, this year it’s sadly going to be a never-before situation due to the deadly pandemic caused by COVID-19. Adhering to the norms of social distancing, people can not meet their near and dear ones or even pray together. But, this doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the holy festival at all. Here are some ways to celebrate Eid-Ul-Fitr during this lockdown.
Although you can’t invite your usual guests for that Eid special feast, you can still prepare Eid delicacies for your family. This will help to create a festive mood. After all, food is an essential part of the celebration.
Since in-person meeting and interaction is not possible during this lockdown, you can always video call your near and dear ones to wish them. You can also zoom call them together and arrange a virtual party or game night to make it engaging.
What is Eid without Eidi? Send out gifts for your beloved ones on the occasion of Eid to bring back their smile even in your absence. You can also send them a gift card if you don’t know what to get them.
To keep up the real essence of Eid you can also donate for a cause. As the world is going through an ongoing crisis, a little help goes a long way. After all, this festival is all about sharing and giving.
