Turkey celebrates Eid al-Fitr

People across Turkey celebrated the first two days of Eid al-Fitr with many mosques packed for early morning prayers and people hosting friends and families at their homes.

The Eid al-Fitr holiday, which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, has brought joy particularly to children, who receive candies and presents as part of the tradition.

Thousands of worshippers were given breakfast and soup after Eid prayers in mosques across the country, and visitors thronged the beaches.

Families also visited the graves of their loved ones.

Also, many people chose to travel to their hometowns or coastal cities for vacations.
