Well, Hari Raya is not the perfect place for fun or things like that but is a great opportunity to take some time for yourself and have a little conversation with Allah. It will help to set your spirit free, you can seek forgiveness and think about everything.
In some countries, Hari Raya Puasa is celebrated by lighting lamps to welcome the angels who visit earth in Ramadhan, eating traditional Malay delicacies such as Ketupat, Nasi Padang and Lontong.
