Eid al-Adha, a four-day long festival, is the most important festival in the Yemenis culture and it is celebrated with much faith and enthusiasm. The festival is celebrated according to the Lunar Calendar.Eid-al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, is another auspicious celebration in the country which is marked by offering prayers, following rituals, donating food and clothes etc. Both these festivals should be avoided if planning a trip to Yemen.
