They also spend time with their family and friends throughout the holidays.

If the sky is excessively bright while the moon is out, or if clouds obstruct it, it can be delayed by a day. This explains why Ramadan can begin on different days in different parts of the globe.

What Do People Do On The Day Of Eid?
Muslims observe the festival Eid al-Fitr, or "the Festival of Breaking the Fast," at the end of the month of fasting. The day begins with a special prayer service known as salat al-eid in the mosque. This involves an Eid salat performance followed by a sermon by the imam.
Many Muslims dress up in their nicest clothing and come with their families and children. Many mosques hold festivals and carnivals after the prayer service, featuring food, games, and rides for children, as well as bazaars and other merchants.
On Eid, some Muslims do additional acts of generosity in addition to paying the mandatory zakat al-fitr, a one-time alms tax for the poor.
Eid al-Fitr is also a time to see friends and family, and many Muslims spend two or three days with their families. Children are given new clothes, jewellery, toys, and other gifts, and parents teach their children the value of fasting and serving God during this month, in addition to celebrating with friends, family, and the greater community.
On the first day of Shawwal, many Muslims attend congregational prayers and listen to a khutba, or sermon. In other regions, these prayers are held outside or in big settings, such as sports arenas. Many Muslims may travel long distances to take part in these events. Some communities hold various celebrations, such as communal feasts or children’s events.
If a Muslim did not pay zakat al-fitr throughout Ramadan, he or she can do so on Eid-al-Fitr. Zakat al-fitr is a type of charity in which the needy are given a certain amount of food, such as barley, dates, raisins, or wheat flour, or its monetary equivalent. Many Muslims may also cook joyous meals to share, dress up in new clothes, visit relatives, and give children gifts or candies. Cards can also be sent, usually with the words "Eid Mubarak" on them.
