Eid al-Fitr, also known as the Festival of Breaking the Fast, is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims around the world. This year, it will be observed on Friday, April 21, 2023. It marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting during Ramadan, which is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. On this day, Muslims gather in mosques or large open spaces for prayers and celebrations. They exchange gifts, prepare special meals, and visit friends and family. The day is a symbol of forgiveness, gratitude, and unity, and is a time for Muslims to reflect on their spiritual journey and their connection to Allah.
