    [size=52]How much do Iraqis spend on Eid? Costumes compete with “make-up” and even the poor buy beyond what they need[/size]

    [size=45]Despite the absence of clear economic statistics, 3 prominent experts say that the occasion of Eid costs Iraqis huge sums of money, as families, even poor ones, allocate sums “exceeding what is needed,” and in this, the provision of food competes with “buying dishdashas” or traditional clothes, and women’s demand for decorative supplies. And cosmetics, what they described as “the highest rate in the region.”[/size]
    [size=45]Abdul Rahman Al-Mashhadani - economic expert:
    There is no clear figure for the volume of financial spending on special occasions, but experts have some estimates. For example, the majority of the Iraqi people eat the “kahi and qaymar” meal on the morning of the first day of Eid, and if we assume that the kahi and qaymar meal costs 10 thousand dinars, If we multiply it by just 5 million Iraqi families, we will find that there are 50 billion dinars spent on one meal during Eid, and spending may be much more than this number.[/size]
    [size=45]Also, if we talk about cosmetics, and say that only one million women each spend 100 thousand dinars on cosmetics in centers and shops during special occasions, then there are 100 billion dinars spent only on one million women on Eid.[/size]
    [size=45]Iraq is one of the countries that spends the most money on holidays, and it is also one of the countries that wastes the most food, compared to countries in the region. The generosity of the Iraqis pushes them to provide everything they have to the guests.[/size]
    [size=45]Nabil Al-Marsoumi - economic expert:
    It is difficult to obtain a specific figure for the volume of spending on holidays and occasions in general, due to the clear lag in statistics and information, but there is significant spending on holidays and occasions. Iraqis shop excessively on these occasions and buy beyond their needs, especially sweets. Clothes and even various types of gifts that parents give to their children on Eid.[/size]
    [size=45]Iraq spends a lot of money on clothes, especially the Arab dishdasha, which is considered the popular dress for young people on the first day of Eid. It is also considered the approved dress for the people of Al-Gharbiyah, some regions of Nineveh, Saladin, and even some southern regions, especially Al-Zubair.[/size]
    [size=45]The amounts spent on shoes, bags, and cosmetics that women buy may exceed the amounts spent on men's dishdashas, ​​as Iraq is considered one of the countries that imports the most cosmetics.[/size]
    [size=45]Iraq is at the forefront of countries spending on occasions. In fact, Iraqis are not rational in their consumption. Some families are forced to borrow in order to provide Eid sweets and clothes, and this is what causes them major problems after this occasion passes.[/size]
    [size=45]Mahmoud Dagher - economic expert:
    We are accustomed to seeing Iraqis spending a lot of money on holidays and occasions, regardless of their backgrounds, and there are no specific numbers for the amount of spending on these occasions.[/size]
    [size=45]Clothes for children and young people of both sexes are the things that Iraqis buy most, but there is exaggerated spending on food, and it may reach 50% of the amount of spending on Eid.[/size]
    [size=45]This large expenditure burdens the poor classes and segments, but this is the case with the Iraqis, as they are accustomed to showing their consumption habits on special occasions.[/size]
