Eid al-Fitr is popularly known as “Festival Of Breaking The Fast” and marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. With this, the all-day-long fasting during the month of Ramadan comes to an end. The observance of this festival depends upon the sighting of the Moon and is considered as an important day for Sunni Muslims residing in Afghanistan.

Preparations for Eid al-Fitr observances begin ten days prior which includes house cleaning, buying new clothes, preparing and buying sweets and gifts respectively for loved ones and much more. On this occasion, famous snacks and desserts are prepared by Afghans, which are:
