Sights and Sounds of Eid!

Eid Mubarak to you and your family! May Allah accept our efforts and all our prayers, ameen. I thought I'd post some pictures of Eid celebrations all over the world.

First some local pics, the Chicago Tribune posted pictures of an Eid celebration in Bridgeview held at Toyota Park (photo by Antonio Perez).

The Empire State Building was lit up in green to celebrate Eid in NYC (check out full photo gallery at the BBC):

In many Muslim countries, people leave the big cities (where they work), in order to celebrate Eid with their families in rural towns. Here's a video of the happy chaos in Bangladesh:
