We hope this answer reaches you in good health and Islamic spirit.

Based on your specific question and information provided.

From the Jurisprudence perspective.

The Eid al-Fiṭr and Eid al-Aḍḥā prayer is obligatory during the presence of the Imam (ʿA) and must be performed in congregation. In our time, when the Imam Al-Mahdi (ʿA) is in occultation, the prayer is recommended ( Mustahab) and it can be performed in congregation or on one’s own.
