Eidi or sawaiyan? What does Eidul Fitr mean to an average Pakistani?

Published: June 27, 2017


Every year, Eid comes with a multitude of expectations; sheer khurma, new clothes, the fresh smell of mehndi, and most importantly, eidi. For most, it means sleeping in, over-eating and repeat, but where’s the fun in that? Eid is all about family, love and celebrations.

This Eid, we wanted to get a gist of what people in Pakistan feel about the holiday in general. The responses are heartwarming and hilarious.

We hope this Eid is filled with health, happiness and countless blessings! Eid Mubarak!
