Is Eid Like Your Christmas?

Celebrating Eid (an Islamic religious festival) as a child was a very different experience to what it is now. At school my friends and teachers would ask "is it like YOUR Christmas?" Just for an easier life and wanting to fit in, I would say "yes it's just like Christmas".
