Muslims Celebrate Eid al-Fitr

Eid Mubarak to all those who observed Ramadan! The moon was sighted on Wednesday in Saudi Arabia, which means that Eid al-Fitr, or the “festival of breaking of the fast,” began today. Though a day-long holiday, some countries will observe Eid al-Fitr tomorrow instead. The festival marks end of Ramadan for Muslims and is celebrated with feasts, family gatherings and large groups gathering together for united prayer.
