Why Eid-el-kabir is a Holiday in Nigeria
The Eid-el-kabir holiday is well celebrated by Nigerian Muslim faithfuls. Another name for this festival is “Eid al Adha,” but either way, the general meaning is “Feast of the Sacrifice,” referring to the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice Ishmael on Mount Moriah, according to Islamic tradition.
Since about 40 percent of Nigerians are Muslim, Id el Kabir is a public holiday in Nigeria.
