Calendar coniditon error

I have a calendar integrated in home assistant, that shows the national holidays in Egypt (all day events in the calendar). My idea is, when the event name contains the word ‘Eid’ and automation will start on the day. So, I made an automation that goes like this:

alias: Eid Day
  description: ''
  - platform: calendar
    event: start
    offset: 0:0:0
    entity_id: calendar.egypt_holidays
  - platform: calendar
    event: end
    offset: 0:0:0
    entity_id: calendar.egypt_holidays
  - condition: template
    value_template: "{{ ''Eid'' in trigger.calendar_event.summary }}"
  - service: notify.mobile_app_iphone
      message: It's Eid day
  mode: single

But, in the GUI, when I press the ‘test’ button to test my condition, it gives me an error meaasage: invalid template (TemplateSyntaxError: expected token ‘end of print statement’, got ‘Eid’) for dictionary value @ data[‘value_template’]

Where is the mistake please?

Should be a single quote around Eid.

Thanks for your prompt help. Unfortunately, now, I go this error message:
template value should be a string for dictionary value @ data[‘value_template’]. Got None

This is a known issue in the GUi and therefore does not necessarily mean the condition is wrong!
