Eid prayers, also known as Salat al-Eid and Salat al-Eidain, is the special prayer offered to commemorate two Islamic festivals. Both the Eids are collectively known as Eidain in Arabic language. The two Islamic festivals are: ⁕Eid al-Fitr, is celebrated on the 1st day of Shawwal, the 10th month of Islamic calendar. ⁕Eid al-Adha, is celebrated on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the 12th month of Islamic calendar. On both the occasions this special prayer is usually offered in Eidgah, a place in the outskirts of the city dedicated for Salat al-Eid. (via Freebase)
