Eid al-Adha Video for children

Here is a video about the Muslim holiday of Eid-al-Adha. In 2008, the holiday starts on Monday, December 8. It is a holiday all about generosity and sharing! Families will give food to the poor, then celebrate together, thankful for all the wonderful food they have to eat.

The holiday is also a time when Muslim people from around the world can travel to the city of Mecca, in the country of Saudi Arabia, to celebrate together. Every year, over 2 million people come to the city!
