End of Ramadan 2010

On the September, 10th 2010, for the Muslims is Eid ul-Fitr or Id-ul-Fitr (in Arabic: عيد الفطر ‘Īdu l-Fiṭr‎), often abbreviated to Eid, is a Muslim holiday that marks the end of the Holy month of Ramadan (started on August, 11th), coincident with first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal. Eid is an Arabic word meaning “festivity”, while Fiṭr means “to break the fast” festivity symbolising the breaking of the fasting period.

On November, 16th Muslims will celebrate world wide Eid al-Adha (in Arabic: عيد الأضحى‎ ‘Īdu l-’Aḍḥā) the “Festival of Sacrifice” or “Greater Eid”, an important religious holiday to commemorate the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God. Eid is also about spending time with family and friends, sacrifice, and thanksgiving for being able to afford food and housing. In traditional or agrarian settings, each family would sacrifice a domestic animal, such as a sheep, goat, cow, or camel. The meat is divided into three equal parts to be distributed to others: one third to family, another third to other relatives (friends or neighbours), and the other third is given to the poor as a gift.
