Note

Muslim festivals are timed according to local sightings of various phases of the moon and the dates given above are approximate. During the lunar month of Ramadan that precedes Aïd al-Fitr, Muslims fast in the day and feast at night and normal business patterns may be interrupted. Disruption may continue into Aïd al-Fitr itself. Aïd al-Fitr and Aïd al-Adha may last anything from 2 to 10 days, depending on the region.
