Eid Mubarak

Ramadan ends later this week, and as it ends it is followed by the Feast of the Breaking of the Fast, عيد الفِطر (ʿīd-i fiṭr, Eid-e Fetr). I talked a little about the celebration of Eid-e Fetr over at my Arabic blog. As a holiday that follows a month of fasting, it’s not surprising to note that it revolves around food, both eating it and giving it to the less fortunate as charity. Spending time with family is also a big part of the holiday.

Appropriate greetings for the festival are the same as in Arabic, عيد مُبارَك (ʿīd mubārak, Eid Mubarak), “Blessed Festival (Eid)” and عيد سَعيد (ʿīd saʿīd, Eid Saeed), “Happy Festival.”
