In Jordan, Eid al-Fitr is a big deal. It’s a religious Islamic festival celebrating the successful completion of the fast of Ramadan. But it also has cultural and commercial aspects here in the Kingdom of Jordan.

As Ramadan comes near its end and Eid Al Fitr approaches, there is a rush at local shopping malls in Jordan. Many also begin to stock up on Eid supplies at specially set up Ramadan markets. Everyone wants to gather the food, gifts, decorations, and other elements to make it a perfect Eid this year.

As Eid arrives on the first day of the month of Shawwal, many first attend special prayer services very early in the morning. Back at home, families dine well and eat plenty of sweets. That’s why the holiday is sometimes called “Sweet Eid”. Children are often given small gifts and many exchange Eid cards.
