Note

(1) Muslim festivals are timed following the sightings of diverse phases of the moon and dates given above are approximations. During the lunar month of Ramadan that precedes Hari Raya Puasa, Muslims fast during the day and feast at night. Normal business patterns may be interrupted. Many restaurants are close during the day and there are restrictions on smoking and drinking. Some disruptions may continue into Hari Raya Puasa itself and Hari Raja Haji may last from 2 - 10 days, depending upon each area. For more details see the World of Islam appendix.

(2) Buddhist festivals are also timed according to phases of the moon and variations occur.
