Eid al-Fitr is also a Muslim festival that follows Ramadan, the month of fasting. The three-day religious festival of Eid al-Fitr celebrates the end of Ramadan, a month of prayer and of abstinence from eating, drinking, smoking, and sexual relations from sunrise to sunset. The celebration begins with the sighting of the new moon of Shawwal, the 10th month in the Islamic lunar calendar, which signals the end of Ramadan, the 9th month.
During Eid al-Fitr Muslims greet neighbors, relatives, and friends at the mosque or on the street, exchanging hugs and wishing one another “Eid Mubarak” (“Blessed Holiday”). Children may receive presents or gifts of money from their parents and other relatives. Eid al-Fitr is also a time for visiting friends and relatives.
