It's Eid-ul-Fitr today, the end of the month of Ramadan. I have the day off and I'm celebrating today.

Best wishes to everyone! KF

Eid-ul-Fitr is a Muslim holiday that celebrates the end of the month of Ramadan, where we fast from dawn until sunset for about 29-30 days. There's more in the Wikipedia article about it. KF

Hooray!

I'm no stranger to fasting; removing eating restrictions is always a good reason to celebrate.

I'd been aware of this day this year - a friend of mine forewent roleplaying until today.

I'm a little late here, but best wishes right back at ya!

I remember helping to serve supper while at college, and I could always tell who had been fasting. I hope the day was a good one for you! :D

And best wishes to you too!! <3
Is fasting still a common tradition? Or does one just give up something dear to them in a similar style to Lent?? I apologize, I know so little about the holiday. ;~;

Yeah it's still a common tradition; most Muslims worldwide continue to observe it. No food or drink from dawn until sunset for about thirty days. KF
