Eid is a day of great Joy .If You are a new Muslim,this list will give you a quick overview on how to celeberate Eid and even if you are celeberating Eid since your childhood ,this Reminder of Eid Celeberation will help you celeberate Eid in the best way i.e.According to Sunnah.
(1)Pay your Zakatul Fitrbefore Eid Salah.
ZAKAT-UL-FITR given on the day of Eid (best time is before going out for prayer)to poor Muslims so they have enough food during Eid.
“Allah’s Messenger has made obligatory zakat al-Fitr in the amount of sa’a of dates or one sa’a of barley, for the Muslims – slave or free, male or female, young or old, and he ordered it to be given before the people went out to the Eid prayer. We would give it out before Eid by a day or two.] Bukhari, Muslim
Ibn ‘Umar used to take a bath on the day of Fitr before proceeding to the musalla. (Malik, Abd al-Razzaq, etc)
The Prophet used to wear his best clothes to go the Eid prayer. He had a cloak that he wore specifically on the two Eid’s and Friday. Ibn ‘Umar also used to wear his best clothes on he two Eid’s. Men may put on perfume, wear a kufi or an imama and not shave their beards while women must observe proper purdah and not put on perfume.
(4)Eat on the morning of Eid:
Allah’s Messenger would not leave his house on the Day of Fitr until he had ate some dates. (Bukhari)
(5) Pray in the Musalla:
The Sunna is to hold the Eid prayer in the open. This outdoor place is called the musalla.
(6)Take different routes:
The Prophet would take different routes on the day of Eid (Bukhari)
(7) Walk to Eidgah
Ali said it is Sunna that you goto Eid walking (Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah)
(8) Say Takbeer Loud
Saying takbeer in a loud voice is a distinctive feature of Eid.
“…And that you must exclaim Allah’s greatness for having guided you, so that you may be grateful.” (Surah al-Baqara; 2: 185)
Perform Eid prayer in congregation
The Prophet would give the Khutba after the prayer.
The Eid khutba of the prophet would be one unit, unlike the Jumu’ah Khutba which is two.
He would give a choice to either listen to the khutba or leave. After finishing the prayer, the Prophet would say,
“We shall give the khutba – so let whoever wishes to sit for khutba do so, and whoever wishes to leave, leave.”

Why is the first "10 days of Dhul Hijja "the Best Days of Islamic year Allaah has preferred the first 10 days of dhul hijja over all the other days of the year.This is evident from the following Hadeeths. Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days." The people asked, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah?" He said, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 2/457). Also (Reported by al-Daarimi, 1/357; its isnaad is hasan as stated in al-Irwaa’, 3/398). Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning)"That they might witness things that ... Continue reading

Assalamualaikum. Thank you for this! I wasn’t aware about the sunnah related to celebration of Eid.
