Eid al-Fitr (Muslim Holiday)

Tuesday & Wednesday August 30 & 31

 Eid al-Fitr falls on the first day following Ramadan. It is a time to be charitable to those in need, and celebrate with family and friends the completion of a month of blessings and joy.

Before the day of Eid, each Muslim family gives a determined amount as a donation to the poor ensures that the needy can have a holiday meal and participate in the celebration.

On the day of Eid, Muslims gather early in the morning in outdoor locations or mosques to perform the Eid prayer. This consists of a sermon followed by a short congregational prayer. Muslims are encouraged on this day to forgive and forget any differences or animosities that may have occurred with others during the year.

After the Eid prayer, Muslims usually to visit various family and friends, give gifts, and make phone calls to distant relatives to give well-wishes for the holiday. These activities traditionally continue for three days In most Muslim countries.
