Eid Al Adha, known as the “Feast of Sacrifice,” is a revered observance that coincides with the final rites of the annual haj in Saudi Arabia. It’s a joyous occasion for which food is a hallmark where devout Muslims buy and slaughter animals and share two-thirds of the meat with the poor.

Residents are calling it a ‘close-to-normal Eid’ after a couple of years of subdued festivities due to Covid-19, even though it’s premature to declare it as ‘game over’ for the pandemic.

Various locations across the country have announced a host of activities for Eid Al Adha, including fireworks.
