Muslim in all over the world will celebrate their holy day, Eid Day, in four or five day later. There is  a different tradition to celebrate that day. Each country has their own way to celebrate it. One of the traditions that we have in my country is "Mudik".

"Mudik" is a mass exodus  of million people from big cities to their villages to celebrate Eid Day with family and friends. 

Million of people are ready to leave big cities to their hometown. News on TV  reported there are around 25 million people who live in big cities  want to get back to their hometown.... Hmmm.. The plane are full, ships, trains and buses are crowded. Thousands of vehicles go out of big cities in a hurry. In the gate of tolls must be happened big traffic jams.

My friends said that hours and hours on the road would drive them nuts, but that is the art of "Mudik". They will spend three times longer or more for their journey. I never be a part of it because I never go back to my hometown on Eid day

Missing our beloved people and hometown can't be replaced by everything. Begging of forgiveness for any transgression in the past is expressed during the visits. That is why they never miss this precious day and  they have no complains when they get into long traffic jam.

I hope the people who want to go back to their hometown, be careful on their journey. Don't get into  Syndrome micro sleep (Sleeping while driving), or you will get into troubles.

I don't know  how the people celebrate  Eid Day in your country. I would love to know it. it must be interesting ....

Have a nice journey and Eid Mubarak for the EC people who celebrate it...

There is no word for 'mudik' in English. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mudik

Well, if it is translated in Google Translate, it would be simply 'going home' lol.

Hi TatuTorus,

Fortunately, I've already been in my hometown since last few days. :))

Mudik is also done in other holidays, but not like Eid Al-Fitr. So, yes. The atmosphere would be so .....significant 

Well, the city must be so quiet without lots of migrants. LOL. 

Thank you for sharing this and greetings. :)
