Insha’Allah Eid al-Adha is CONFIRMED to be on Tuesday, October 15, 2013. The Fiqh Council of North America(FNCA) celebrates Eid al-Adha a day after the Wuquf of Arafah due to several Sharai’ reasons. Eid al-Fitr is connected only with the sacred timings while Eid al-Adha is connected with sacred timings as well as sacred places such as Arafat, Mina, Muzdalifah and Makkah. Therefore the FCNA follows the movements of Hujjaj and celebrates Eid al-Adha a day after the official Wuquf of Arafah.

Blessings of the 1st 10 days of Dhul Hijjah
It is narrated from Ibn Umar that the Prophet Muhammad (Blessings of Allah and Peace be upon him) said: "There aren't any days greater, nor any days in which deeds done in them are more beloved to Allah, the Most High, than these ten days (of Dhul-Hijjah). So, increase in them the saying of Tahleel (La Ilaaha illa Allah), and Takbeer (Allah Akbar) and Tahmeed (al-Hamdu li-llah)" [Musnad Imaam Ahmad]
 
Virtues of Fasting on the Day of Arafah(9th of Dhul-Hijjah - Mon Oct 14, 2013)
Abu Qatada (Allah be pleased with him) related that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him, his family, and companions) said, "Fasting the Day of `Arafah [9th of Dhul-Hijjah] expiates for two years, one prior and one forthcoming. And fasting the Day of `Ashura [10th of Muharram] expiates for the past year."
[Reported by Muslim, Abu Dawud, Nasa'i, and Ibn Majah]
