Happy Eid Al-Adha!

Loonwatch sends its greetings and well wishes for all who are celebrating Eid Al-Adha, the Festival of Sacrifice.

Millions of Muslims around the world celebrated one of the biggest Muslim religious festivals, Eid al-Adha, on Tuesday morning.

Prayers were offered up and, in keeping with tradition, goats, sheep and cattle were slaughtered in commemoration of prophet Abraham’s readiness to sacrifice his son to show obedience to Allah.
