Muslims: Suggest good articles about Eid al Adha?

I would like articles about Eid al-Adha that are simple and written in very good English. I would like some help in discussing with non-Muslims the origin of Eid al Adha, particularly Abraham and his time in Makkah.

Update:

Note: Wiki is not a valid source, whether academically or Islamically.

    On the first morning of Eid al-Adha, Muslims attend morning prayers at their local mosques. Prayers are followed by visits with family and friends, and the exchange of greetings and gifts, where i live the elders give us money :P Also, one very important thing (which i find strange many of the other answerers left out) is that people sacrifice an animal, usually a sheep.. and then the meat is distributed and given to the poor and needy, during the holiday or shortly after. may you have a great first eid al adha :)
