Eid-ul-Fitr or Eid is one of the biggest Islamic festivals around the world. It is the first day of the 10th Islamic month of Shawwal and marks the conclusion of Ramzan - a month of fasting and prayer.
The Shawwal moon is first sighted in Saudi Arabia. The timings and dates, however, differ in all countries. Traditionally, Eid ul-Fitr begins at sunset on the night of the first sighting of the crescent moon. If the moon is not observed immediately after the 29th day of the previous lunar month (either because clouds block its view or because the western sky is still too bright when the moon sets), then the holiday is celebrated the following day.
This year, Eid ul-Fitr will be celebrated on May 25, Monday.
On the day, people exchange greetings with each other over the phone and or internet.
If you are someone who wants to start off the holy day by greeting someone, here are some text notes for you:
