Eid-al-Fitr is one of two major festivals in the Islamic faith and literally means ‘the feast of the breaking of the fast’. It marks the end of Ramadan holy month, when devout Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset.
The festival began last night and can continue for up to three days, with Muslims greeting each other by saying Eid Mubarak. Children are given presents and money to celebrate the occasion and everyone typically wears new clothes. In Muslim countries, cities are lit up with lights to celebrate the end of the holy month.
