Note

Muslim festivals are celebrated depnding on the local sightings of the various phases of the moon, therefore the dates given above are approximations. During the lunar month of Ramadan that precedes Eid al-Fitr, Muslims feast at night and fast during the day. General business patterns may be interrupted and several restaurants are closed during the day, thre can also be restrictions on smoking and drinking. Some disruption may continue into Eid al-Fitr itself. Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha may last from 2 to 10 days, depending on the region.

Buddhist festivals are also timed according to phases of the moon and variations do occur.
