A Little Story about Hari Raya and Kad Raya Design Templates, Free to Download
Honestly, I have no in-depth understanding about Hari Raya Aidilfitri but I know that it is a celebration at the end of Ramadan and thank you to Mr. Wikipedia for providing this info about Eid ul-Fitr in Souteast Asia.
Eid is known in Indonesia as Idul Fitri (or more informally as Lebaran) and is a national holiday. Additionally, in Indonesia Idul Fitri has a legally mandated salary bonus for all employees, known as Tunjangan Hari Raya (THR) as enforced by Indonesia’s Department of Labour, Employment and Society (“Departemen Pengawasan Dinas Tenaga Kerja dan Sosial”). The mandated amount of this salary bonus differs by region.
In Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei, Eid is more commonly known as Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Hari Raya Idul Fitri or Hari Raya Puasa. Hari Raya, which literally means ‘Celebration Day’.
Idul Fitri is the biggest holiday in Indonesia and Brunei; and one of the biggest in Malaysia and Singapore. Shopping malls and bazaars are usually filled with people days ahead of Idul Fitri, which creates a distinctive festive atmosphere throughout the country, along with traffic mayhem. Many banks, government and private offices are closed for the duration of the Lebaran festivities.

In Brunei particularly as what I have observed, people send greeting cards which they call kad raya or kad hari raya in slang manner. This is similar to what Christians do during Christmas Season. Malls and department stores hang indoor and outdoor banners to send non-verbal greetings to everyone. And, there are a lot of things to mention about this celebration but I should not forget the uniform design of dresses of many families walking around the country during Hari Raya. “Open House” is also thing to remember.
As continuation of the paragraph I have quoted from Wikipedia, it is further stated that it is common to greet people with “Selamat Idul Fitri” or “Salam Aidilfitri” or “Selamat Hari Raya“(in Malaysia) which means “Happy Eid”. Muslims also greet one another with “mohon maaf lahir dan batin” in Indonesia and “maaf zahir dan batin” in Malaysia, which means “Forgive my physical and emotional (wrongdoings)”, because Idul Fitri is not only for celebrations but a time for atonement: to ask for forgiveness for sins which they may have committed but was cleansed as a result of the fasting in the Muslim month of Ramadan.
On the other hand, this designs you see here are free templates of kad raya which you can download and where you can add your personal message before sending them to your friends and loved ones. These greeting cards designs are optimized for online purposes but the sizes are also enough to printed in A5 size of paper so you can use these as e-card and you can also have a hard copy Hari Raya greeting card.
“Even though we’ve changed and we’re all finding our own place in the world, we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we’ll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we’re not all still friends.”
“I’d like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me, I’d like to be the help that you’ve been always glad to be; I’d like to mean as much to you each minute of the day, as you have meant old friend of mine, to me along the way.”
“The hardest part about being friends, is loving you so much”
