Eid al-Adha, also known as the Feast of Sacrifice, is a four-day holiday where Muslims come together to celebrate their faith by eating a lot of red meat. The holiday kicks off today and runs through Monday, October 29.

Did you know that:

-Eid al-Adha is celebrated to honor and commemorate the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son Ishmael as per God’s order. God provided Abraham with a sheep to sacrifice at the last second instead.

-The meat is divided into three parts: the family keeps one third; another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; and the last part is given to those in need. The idea is that no impoverished person is left without meat on the table during Eid al-Adha.
