The festival marks the end of restrictions and difficulties, the end of the fasting period, and Muslims in different countries of the world rejoice and warmly congratulate each other and even strangers. The traditional form of greeting is considered to be a three-time embrace and pronouncing the words of congratulations – Eid Mubarak.
