In commemoration, Muslims around the world usually slaughter sheep or cattle. The Guardian has a excellent slide show with a few photographs showing some of that sacrificial offering.
Other resources for the holiday include:
- The Atlantic's In Focus has a page of great photographs
- BBC Religion has a short page about the holiday
- The Huffington Post also has a good slide show
- The Global Post has a page of great phtographs
