The national holiday comes on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal, immediately following the holy month of Ramadan and month-long period of fasting, prayer and devotion. It is one of the most important of all Muslim commemorations.

The date of Eid al-Fitr will vary on the Gregorian Calendar, but it always comes on 1 Shawwal on the Islamic Calendar.

Following the month-long fast of Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr is a time to attend public prayer, ask and give forgiveness for any past wrongs, clean your house and wear new clothes, and catch up with friends and family you may not have seen for some time. People literally go from house to house visiting for three days in a row.
