Most of us know that is sunnah to go to the Eid prayer from one way and return from a different way.

Narrated Jabir bin `Abdullah:

On the Day of 'Id the Prophet (ﷺ) used to return (after offering the `Id prayer) through a way different from that by which he went.

(Sahih al-Bukhari, see also similar narrations on the authority of abu Hurairah in Jami' at-Tirmidhi, sunan ibn Majah and on the authority of ‘Abdur-Rahman bin Sa’d bin ‘Ammar bin Sa’d in sunan ibn Majah)

What is the wisdom behind going to the Eid prayer from one path and returning from another if any? (I'd like to have sourced interpretations "Scholar X says's "...", Scholar Y ...")
