Finally, after a month of fasting, you are rewarded with 3 days of Eid to celebrate successfully going through the holy month of Ramadan.

Eid is celebrated gloriously, or well, it was in the past. It is that time of the year when families come together, a massive feast is arranged, and everyone has the time of their lives. However, ever since the digital technology has advanced, the youngsters are confined to their laptops or mobile phones and Eid is not as fun as it once used to be. Although the excitement and expectations from Eid are the same as ever, the reality is quite different.
