The holy month of Ramadan is almost coming to an end, which also means that Eid-ul-Fitr is right around the corner. After a month of fasting, on the day of Eid, people celebrate by offering prayers in the morning to God, wishing, greeting and hugging each other, and the elders give Eidi to the younger ones. The day is also special, for relatives, friends and acquaintances, as all come together over a special Eid dinner. This Eid is the biggest festival among Muslims. Eids are of many kinds, but one of the most significant Eid is the Meethi Eid. 

Dates are popular during Eid.

Also called Eid-ul-Fitr, on the day, people prepare a host of sweet dishes. Meethi, in fact, refers to something sweet. So from sheer khurma to kheer, Eid is all about sweet indulgences.
