Eid al-Adha is a very holy day for Muslims, yet, in Bahrain, it has become a very exuberant festival day as well. There are many events for kids and adults alike all over the island, and there are many special luncheons at hotels and restaurants as well as fireworks shows.

Most Muslims will go to mosque, sacrifice an animal for the feast if they can afford it, put on their best clothes, visit friends and relatives, and spend a lot of time with family at home.
