The happy celebration to mark the end of a beautiful month of Ramadan is known as Eid al-Fitr. The meaning of Fitr is “to break” that illustrates the breaking of the Feast period. Muslims forgive and forgot all past arguments and quarrels and celebrate it together with sweet dishes and other delicious meals.
Note that with regards to the Muslim calendar, a holiday is commenced on the sunset of the preceding day; thus, Eid al-Fitr 2021 will be observed on the sunset of Wednesday 12th May, 2021.
Eid al-Fitr always falls on the same day according to the Islamic calendar; for it being a lunar calendar. Nonetheless, the day differs on the Gregorian calendar as it is a solar calendar; causing roughly an eleven day difference each year.
The dates of Eid al-Fitr are usually determined by either an actual sighting of the moon with the naked eyes, or through astronomical calculations. Note that dates provided here are based on the dates adopted by the Fiqh Council of North America.
