I love the photos from Eid. They're always so colorful and intriguing.

Me too, someday, I'd love to be in an area where the majority celebrate.

You'd like to go where? You've got more chance of going to Mars than Mecca.

Both muslim men and woman can do Umrah or Haj. Women can pray at Mecca but there is a seperate area (as it is in any mosque). You will find that the majority are men though

You have to be muslim to do umrah or haj and a special Umrah/Haj Visa is issued to those travelling to Saudi for the pilgrammage.

There are to Eid's each year. One straight after Ramadam and one approx 2 months later, which is a celebration.

If you really look like your passport photo, you need the holiday!
