The holiday falls on the tenth of Hajjah on the Islamic Calendar, but in Tunisia, it’s officially a two-day holiday and the people keep celebrating for three to four days.

In Tunisia, mostly men go to mosque early on Eid morning to pray and hear a sermon, while women stay home and prepare for the feast and festivities. When the men return home, it’s time to sacrifice a sheep, goat, or other animal for the feast. A third of the meat is kept by the family, a third given to relatives, and a third given to the poor.

Also, people bake special Eid biscuits to give as gifts on this day, and children are often given presents of cookies and other sweets.
