1. Working on Eid when they don't have to
2. Not giving Eidi or gifts to children/family
3. Staying home and watching TV all Eid day
Eid is meant to have fun. It is meant as a celebration, BY GOD, for all you have done in Ramadan. It may be a challenge to celebrate Eid in a non-Muslim country but it's not hard, nor is it particularly tough. Really, is it that hard to just have a good time?
Have a party. Arrange some games (here's some Eid game suggestions!). Visit your friends. Give your mom a call (and dad too). Forgive your enemies. Switch off the TV and go outside. Don't be a $$$$ miser, give some gifts!
Here's in advance a very happy Eid Mubarak to all my readers.
