Eid-ul-Fitr

In Guyana, the May-June period marks Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. Eid-ul-Fitr, also known as the ‘Festival of Breaking the Fast’, is a religious holiday observed by Muslims worldwide that celebrates the end of Ramadan. Indulging in excellent food, religious ceremonies and connecting with friends and family are some of the key highlights of the day. In addition to Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-Adha and Youman Nabi are two other very prominent holidays dedicated to Muslim observances in Guyana.
