The Holy month of Ramzan has come to an end and the Muslim community across the world celebrating Eid Al-Fitr soon. Also referred to as Meethi Eid, it marks the end of Roza (fasting), which is observed for one whole month during Ramadan. This is why, it is also marked as the festival of breaking fast. Every year, Meethi Eid falls on the first day of Shawwal in the Islamic calendar. As per experts, this does not always fall on the same Gregorian day, as the start of any lunar Hijri month varies based on when the new moon is sighted by local religious authorities. This is why the date of Eid varies every year.
