    Applying perfume, eating any dessert or anything sweet such as dates and reaching at the place of Eid Salah very early. It is also Sunnah to use different ways of approaching Eid place and then returning from it. It is also said that one should go over the foot for praying Eid Salah. 

    The logic behind it can be to perform Eid Prayer in the neighborhood so that people living in nearby areas can see each other and wish Eid. It is also obligatory or is wajib for every earning Muslim to give ‘Sadqa-e-Fitr’ or commonly known as ‘Fitrana’, a kind of charity for the deserving Muslims who cannot afford to celebrate Eid on their own. People usually give away their Fitrana before Eid day so that the ones receiving it can use the amount for Eid Day.
