Eid ul-Fitr is the festival observed by the Muslim people marking the end of the month of Ramadan. In Arabic Eid means "festivity" and Fitr means "to break the fast". Islamic people keep a month long fasting during Ramadan whereby taking food during day time is forbidden.
On the day of Eid Muslims attend an early morning prayer after having a small breakfast. This prayer is organized as a large gathering of Muslim people in a mosque or any open place. People dress themselves in their best clothes which are mostly new and bought for the festival the same year. After the prayer people exchange greetings and embrace each other as a sign of solidarity. On this day Muslims visit friends and other family members and make phone calls to distant relatives to exchange well wishes.
