Significance of henna mehndi for Eid festival

Night of eid also referred to as chand raat is when women of all ages from the Islamic community get henna applied to hands. The henna tattoo ritual is observed with passion countries like Indian and Pakistan and also alot of middle eastern countries which are dominated by the muslim population. eid is celebrated with great fervor as it comes only twice a year. The Ramzan eid with is also called Eid-ul-Fitr is considered the bigger eid but Eid-ul-Adha also referred to as bakra eid is celebrated with equal joy these days. For eid, women shop for ethnic clothes and plan menus mostly consisting of non-vegetarian dishes and sweet delicacies. But can a girl imagine her eid look without henna laced hands? A big NO is an answer. 

What kind of mehndi designs do women prefer for eid? 

While the kind of mehndi designs preferred for weddings of close relatives and friends are more heavy and complicated in nature eid mehndi designs are simpler and more minimal. In fact the majority of women arabic patterns for eid as it goes well with the whole traditional festival theme. These days including Islamic motif elements like the mosque, dome, and even moon are hot in trend but classic patterns also work well.  You can of course apply whatever kind of mehndi pattern you like, simple or elaborate Arabic or Indian but mehndi you definitely must apply. 
Most marriages mehndi artists are hired to apply henna but for eid mehndi is mostly applied by cousins, relatives siblings or even neighbors who possess basic henna application skills. These days women have started going to mehndi artists even for eid but these artists don't charge a bomb because henna is relatively easier and simplistic for eid festival.
