Children are the main focus of Eid’s traditional customs in many cultures. Several families in Qatar pointed out that they wanted to make children happier during Eid. Shopping malls reported big sales of children’s clothes, toys and sweets during Eid. Family visits are an essential part of Eid celebrations for most residents of Middle Eastern origin. They clean and decorate their houses meticulously and prepare traditional dishes that distinguish their particular culture and to give them to visiting family members and friends. Families buy new clothes and gifts for children. Egyptians pay “gift money” to children. And families make it a point to visit places like zoo, beaches and parks that children could enjoy. A young expatriate woman said: “I believe frequenting such gatherings of different people is good for children. They would play with their counterparts and this would help them build on their social skills.” Gulf Times
