Eid al-Fitr signals the end of Ramadam and the beginning of a three-day festival where Muslims all over the world give generously to those in need, as well as enjoying the company of family of friends. This is a joyous time when families seperated by distance make a point of connecting - either via the telephone line or by visiting one another.
with the emphasis on gratitude and spiritual matters, the celebration starts with early morning prayers, either in outdoor locations or in local mosques, after which family and friends spend time together, possibly even exchanging gifts.
