Today's Reason to Celebrate

Eid Al-Fitr

Eid al-Fitr begins tonight at sundown! This Muslim holiday celebrates the end of Ramadan—a holy month of fasting. In Arabic, “Eid” means “festivity” and “fitr” means “breaking the fast.” There are over 2 billion people in the world who observe the religion of Islam, and many of them will gather together today for this joyous occasion.

There are many traditions associated with Eid al-Fitr. In the days leading up to this holiday, each Muslim family donates a specific amount of food to those in need. This ensures that everyone can participate in the celebration. On the day of Eid, families and friends traditionally host large feasts, exchange gifts, and send well-wishes to loved ones near and far.
