Hello Fede,
Eid-ul Adha - Festival of Sacrifice, is a festival where Muslims all over the world remember the tough sacrifice prophet Abraham had to make and was rewarded by Allah by sparing prophet Ishmael and making him an example for us to follow in our lives - when we choose to submit to His will, all ends well.
Muslims who can afford to do so sacrifice their best domestic animals (usually sheeps, cows and goats) as a symbol of Ibrahim's sacrifice. they give some of them to poor people, relatives or friends and keep some for themselves. This happens on the first day of the eid(which is 4 days).

Hope it helps
Best wishes

Thank you, Marwa.
I knew the meaning of the holiday, Festival of Sacrifice. What I was wondering about is how do common people celebrate it. If it lasts 4 days, what do they do on the other 3?
I hope I am not too curious, I would just like to learn more about Egyptian life and traditions.

Best wishes,
Fede

Not at all Fede, you are always welcome. It is just like any other holiday in the world, except that people going out usually to visit their relatives. Others are just gathered in the family house (house of grandparents). And the most enjoyable part, of course just for children, adults give children money in the first day of Eid. the amount of money differ from one to another. when i was child, I used to take between 20 to 50 from each of my nearest relatives, which is wow for a kid.. Lovely Days
