Eid Mubarak! The new moon was sighted on Sunday in Saudi Arabia, which indicates the end of Ramadan and the period of celebration that begins the following day. Commonly known as Eid al-Fitr (عيد الفطر) in the Arabic-speaking world, the festival also goes by other names such as Idul Fitri in Indonesia, Hari Raya Aidilfitri in Malaysia and Shemai Eid in Bangladesh. Eating plays an important part on Eid al-Fitr day, bringing an end to the month-long fast of Ramadan. Families bring out traditional varieties of homemade sweets and many also make generous donations of food during the holiday, as Eid also celebrates extending good will to others. The holiday can last up to three days depending on the country, and Instagrammers taking part in the festivities are sharing their moments filled with good food and good spirits.
