Celebrate The Eid on January 21st

Being that our school is very ethnically diverse we really try to recognize the many cultural holidays our students celebrate. Coming up is the moslem holiday EID which is celebrated on January 21st. Here's a link you can share with your students called Celebrate Eid
"Eid is a Muslim celebration that lasts for three days at the end of Ramadan, which ends on the morning after the new moon is seen in the sky (Ramadan occurs in the ninth month of the lunar calendar). Children are told to watch for the new moon. This year, Eid is projected to begin on November 26th. During Eid-Ul-fitr Muslims exchange gifts and cards and pay visits to friends. The lyrics to this song reflect the information given to me by the families I sang for at an Eid celebration last year. I am indebted to them for teaching me about their culture, and as always, believe even a simple song can help bridge the differences between us."
