About Eid
Eid is a global Muslim cultural event that officially marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. Observed by millions of Muslims, Eid sees celebrations across communities and families throughout the world.

Eid-al-Fitr literally means the Festival of Fast-Breaking and is a time of important religious significance. It is also a day of forgiveness and unity.

Ramadan starts with the sighting of the crescent moon and lasts for one month. When the crescent moon is visible again at the end of the month, Eid-al-Fitr begins.

Traditionally the festive atmosphere is increased by everyone wearing their best clothes, so get dressed up and join in the celebrations!
