Where I originally come from, Eid is a 3 day holiday. People prepare for it days ahead and you can still feel the atmosphere after the holidays are over.
Here, I woke up early, went for the prayers, came back home to change and left for work. It was all over in 3 hours.
A few of my friends did go out for a picnic, but I didn't find out about the plan until the last minute, by which time I had my own plans. Regardless, my wife and I haven't been feeling very social lately. Also, with most of friends having kids in the last year or so, the gatherings now are a loud, chaotic affair. Absorbing all that noise and activity is exhausting.
