While Eid celebrations span across three days, the term Eid-ul-Fitr means “festival of breaking the fast”. This festival marks the end of the holy month of Ramzan. The festivities begin after the sighting of the crescent moon but if the moon is not spotted it continues onto the next day. Streets are decorated with beautiful lights while everyone wears new clothing. However, this time the celebrations stand cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It should be noted that while the actual date of it really depends on the sighting of the moon, this year it is believed that the festival will begin on May 23, which is a Saturday, and continue till May 24, a Sunday. Eid falls on the first day of the month of ‘Shawwal’, and on that day, Muslims do not need to fast. As mentioned earlier, the sighting of the moon decides the date. Islam follows the lunar calendar and not the Gregorian calendar, and relies on the waxing and waning phases of the moon. (Follow Eid-ul-Fitr Live Updates)
