It’s Hari Raya Aidilfitri season, so Selamat Hari Raya everyone!

A few weeks ago, I was commissioned by My Malaysia to write a feature article to show how the different layers of society celebrated their Raya, specifically from the perspective of their socio-economic background. So I chose three different families who were willing to open up and share their stories with me. Check it out!

A tale of three Raya celebrations
By Zan Azlee

Hari Raya Aidilfitri may be one of the most popular religious holidays in Malaysia but each family celebrates it differently. Three families from across the Klang Valley share their traditions and rituals with us.

Malaysia has a lot of cultural and religious festivals and multi-cultural Malaysians have never been a people who would turn down a good celebration. Hari Raya Aidilfitri is certainly no different.

We talk to three families from different segments of society to see how they celebrate. And although they might have different backgrounds or even privileges, one thing is for sure – they know the importance of celebrating it with family and friends. And of course, with good food!
