Mwadjuma Nyirasafari, Rwanda, ESOL Writing II

My favorite holiday in my country is Eid. Eid is a Muslim festival, in particular Eid al-Fitr or Eid al-Adha. First, Eids are the only days when Muslims come together for prayers and celebration. All Muslims in my country have to go to the same place where the prayers are led by a Muslim leader. Second, Muslims share the meal with family and friends. Muslims who don't have means to celebrate Eid are invited in the families or get helped by those who have means so they can enjoy this holiday with their loved ones.

Finally, the government gives days off to the whole country so that Muslims can enjoy their holidays freely. Non-Muslims love to join those who are celebrating Eid, too. As a result, Eid is a special day for all the people in Rwanda.
