During isolation, Muslims turn to Animal Crossing to celebrate Eid

May 24, 2020 1 min read

Today is Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday that follows the holy month of Ramadan, where Muslims spend each day abstaining from food and water and spend extra time on reflection and spirituality. Normally, this is a day of huge gatherings, both at the mosques and at family and friends' house, and plenty of food.

With the current pandemic, restrictions prevent just about everything that makes Eid special to the community. Yet, as we all know, life finds a way. Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a popular destination for Muslim gatherings both during Ramadan and throughout today's Eid celebrations.
