Eid al-Fitr (/d əl ˈfɪtər/ eed əl FIT-ərArabicعيد الفطر‎ ʻĪd al-FiṭrIPA: [ʕiːd al fitˤr]), also called the “Festival of Breaking the Fast” or Lesser Eid, is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan. This religious Eid is the only day in the month of Shawwal during which Muslims are not permitted to fast. The date for the start of any lunar Hijri month varies based on when the new moon is sighted by local religious authorities, so the day of celebration varies by locality. The holiday is widely called Korité in West Africa. – Wikipedia
