The dates for the festivals Eid al-Fitr and Eid ul-Adha are based on the (Islamic) lunar calendar and therefore shift annually. Ramadan always takes place in the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Eid al-Fitr is celebrated for three days after the end of the 30-day Ramadan. It is one of the most important festivals in Islam. On these days, Muslims eat together, pray in the mosque, remember deceased relatives and meet relatives. The “Feast of Breaking the Fast” is also called Eid.

The month after Ramadan is the “Shavwal”. It begins with the festival of breaking the fast. On the 1st Shavwal, the visit to the mosque is scheduled. After that, family members visit each other. Here, it is customary for younger family members to visit elders. So children go to visit parents, grandparents and relatives. A meal is eaten together. Children even receive gifts. Some Muslims donate to charity on this day.

During the Feast of Sacrifice, it is traditional for Muslims to eat a ritually slaughtered animal. The animal is slaughtered according to Islamic custom.

In Muslim countries, children are off school on Eid and employees are usually off as well. In Germany, some states allow Muslim students to get time off from school on the first day of Eid al-Fitr.

The term “Eid al-Fitr” is a translation of the Turkish expression “Şeker Bayramı”. This is also called “Ramazan Bayramı,” in English: Ramadan-Fest.
