What does Bayram mean in English? Meaning, translation


“Bayram” is a Turkish word meaning “festival” or “holiday” in English. Bayram is the name given to religious and national holidays.

Bayram: Religious holidays in Turkey

  • Ramazan Bayramı (festival of breaking the fast as the end of Ramadan; also called “Şeker Bayramı” and in German “Zuckerfest”; (meaning “Sweet Festival”); see also: Eid Mubarak)
  • Kurban Bayramı (Feast of Sacrifice)
  • Hamursuz bayramı (Passover; Jewish holiday)
  • Paskalya Bayramı (Easter; usually Easter is called “paskalya yortusu” in Turkey. However, some Turks also refer to the festival as “Paskalya Bayramı.”)

The most important festivals in Islam are “Ramazan Bayram” and “Kurban Bayram”. The Arabic name for “Kurban Bayram” is “Eid ul Adha”. In German it is called “Opferfest”. The Arabic name for “Ramazan Bayram” is “Eid al-Fitr”. In English, it refers to the “Eid al-Fitr” and “Festival of Breaking the Fast”.

Ramazan Bayram begins on the 1st of Şevval (Schauwāl, Shawwal) following the fasting month of Ramadan. Kurban Bayram, the Feast of Sacrifice, takes place from the 8th to the 13th day in the twelfth month of the Islamic calendar. This month is called “Dhū l-Hijjah.” The Feast of Sacrifice is celebrated on four days.

By the way, the word “Kurban” means “sacrifice” in English.

Congratulations: Congratulate on the Bayram

Those who want to congratulate on “Ramazan Bayram” and “Kurban Bayram” can say the following words:

  • Bayramınız mübarek olsun (English: May your Bayram be blessed).
  • İyi bayramlar (English: Happy celebration / happy holidays).
  • Eid Mubarak (English: Happy celebration / happy holidays)

“Hepinizin bayramı mubarek olsun” is said to a group and means in English”I wish you all a happy holiday”.

Mixed forms such as “Happy Bayram” or “All the best for Bayram” are also said.

On national Turkish holidays, the following may be wished:

Bayramınız kutlu olsun (English: Happy holiday).
