Happy Eid Al Fitr! We wish you joy and happiness  spending this holiday  with family and friends celebrating the end of the holy month of Ramadan and the start of the new lunar month. Eid means “a festivity” and it can describe any kind of celebration even a birthday, but the popular word “eid” in the Arab world refers to the 2 major Eids Muslims celebrate, Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Adha. From all at Virgin Megastore – Eid Mubarak!

Eid Al Adha_02

We’re all so happy and looking forward to a wonderful long Eid holiday this weekend. Eid Al Adha is one of the most important Muslim holidays and everyone goes out of their way to make sure they buy and deliver the best in the clothes they wear, the places they visit or the gifts they choose! Eid time is a celebratory time and it calls for enjoying life’s splendors in all its good and positive ways. Here at Virgin Megastore we want to add that best experience for our wonderful and eager customers and have thought of two ways of making that happen.

Dawn of the Planet Of the Apes

A sequel to the Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set to release in the UAE on the first day of Eid.

Following the success of our humorous Ramadan – How To Guide, we decided to create a humorous Eid guide for our followers. It has always been the tradition in almost every Eid-celebrating household to give out Eidiyas to kids, teens, and wives on the start of every Eid. Eidiya are gifts that are given by family elders such as grandparents, fathers, uncles in form of money. Though different cultures apply different traditions, the Eidiya is common throughout all. The purpose of the Eidiya is simple gift-giving but instead of receiving presents, you can buy whatever you please with the money you receive. Another really important part of your Eidiya is how you split it to benefit charities. Charity in Eid-Al-Fitr is a must and it’s a great deed if you can start from a young age. As for our Eid…
