National Day

Muslim festivals are scheduled depending on local sightings of various phases of the moon and the dates given above are rough estimates. During Ramadan, the lunar month that precedes Eid al-Fitr, Muslims fast in the daytime and feast during the night and common business activities can be interrupted.

Many restaurants are closed during the day and there may be restrictions on drinking and smoking. Some interruption may carry on into Eid al-Fitr itself. Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha may last anything from 2 to 10 days, relying on the region.
