Solat Chaudhry, CEO of the National Centre for Diversity, describes Eid as a family event cherished by Muslims, akin to Christmas in the UK. He humorously notes the similarities in family dynamics, such as boorish relatives, excess food, and excited children. Eid involves a large family gathering, starting with a mosque visit and followed by a big meal and lively conversations, creating a nostalgic and joyous atmosphere.
