Which preposition in connection with religious holidays?
I would like to know which is the preferred preposition in connection with the religious holiday Eid. I normally say at Christmas, at Easter (I hope this is correct), and to me it also sounds correct to say "at Eid". An alternative is "during Christmas/Easter/Eid", of course. The reason I'm asking is that I saw "on Eid" written in a text, and it sounded incorrect to me.

Eid is supposed to last three days right? maybe they were referring to a single day there.
