It's Hajj tomorrow and it's another huge religious celebration for the Muslims. Since the stores would be closed during the celebration, I went to purchase fresh food for a couple of days. I don't know how long they'll close this time as we're still in lockdown here. It's not like people can go visit their relatives. That also meant I can't buy breakfast which really sucks. I don't really like to cook in the morning if I can help it. Does seller close their business during huge religious celebration in your country too?

Yeah tomorrow is Bakrid for all Muslim friends. Most of the sellers will open the shop tomorrow in my country. Good day.

No. Here they don't close anytime and actually during these days they get more sales. Enjoy the festival and have a great day

Happy Eid Al Adha. I'm sure you're at the mosque for Eid Al Adha prayer. I can't do it because I have to pick up my wife. Here the shop is always open after prayer.

Yes tomorrow is Bakri Id which we call it as for, Eid al-adha....it is a festival of sacrifice for the Muslims and a very important religious festival. We would have businesses open but not the Muslim community. They would keep it closed

It is call Aidil Adha here. Due to the pandemic, it's not being hugely celebrated right now. But stores are closed for a day or two.

No, most businesses are still open no matter what day it is. The only day a lot of them are closed is Christmas. (And you can still find small stores open even on that day.)

Even the grocery store near my house is closed right now. I don't know for how long. The veggie stall told me they're close only for today.

@prinzcy You live in a largely Muslim community? There are a few Muslims in my community, but it's mostly Christians. (The Christians are more about making money than the Muslims seem to be.)

@DaddyEvil yes, I guess 99% here are Muslims. They're just being laidback on the day

Everything stays open here, but most stores close for Christmas. Many restaurants remain open.

It's a holiday today in the Philippines as a sign of respect to our Muslim brothers and sisters even if our country is predominantly Christian.

I didn't know it's a holiday for you too. It's holiday during AidilFitri too? (the religious celebration after Muslims' fasting month)

only some of them close shops because there are three religions here and not everyone celebrates Eid.

It's the same here but everyone would just close their store on the first day, regardless of their religion. Only shops and restaurants like KFC and Watson's are open on that day.
