Eid al-Fitr 2021, 2022 and 2023 in Tunisia

In Tunisia, an overwhelmingly Muslim country, two days of Eid al-Fitr are public holidays instead of just one. And the people usually go on celebrating for three or four days. This is truly one of the most excited times of the year in Tunisia.

Some Eid al-Fitr traditions in Tunisia are the same as in most other Islamic lands, like wearing new clothes, men attending early morning Eid prayer sessions, giving a zakat al Fitr food-gift to the poor, and forgiving one another for past offenses. But one aspect, the “Kharja”, is completely unique.

People prepare for days ahead and come from numerous foreign countries to attend the Kharja peace march in Tunis during Eid el-Fitr. It is both a religious and a cultural event and involves marching through the streets chanting out prayers and calling out to others to join the march for peace.

The annual Kharja is a purely symbolic action, but its message is thought to connect well with the meaning of Eid el-Fitr and has come to largely define this holiday in Tunisia.
