Several traditions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) indicate the virtue of this night; therefore it is desirable to offer prayers in this night:

 ومن المندوبات ۔۔ احیاء لیلۃ العیدین والنصف من شعبان الخ (الدر المختار مع الشامی: 2/469)

But, it is not right to observe this night collectively with so much attention and arrangements.

Allah knows Best!
