Eid is celebrated after the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. It’s a three-day festival observed by the Muslim community and holds great religious significance across the globe. Eid-ul-Fitr literally means ‘festival of breaking the fast’. This festival symbolizes faith and is celebrated based on an Islamic belief by following the form of social practice.
Eid is the most holy month in the Islamic calendar and is celebrated on the first date of Shawwal, that is, the tenth month of the Hijra calendar. On this day many non-Muslim countries also declare Eid ul-Fitr as a gazetted holiday. Muslims exchange gifts and greet their friends and family.

Biryani and Sivayaan (sweet vermicelli noodles with milk & dry fruits) are just few of the many delectable dishes that are prepared on this special day. The significance of this festival is also interpreted as a good time to bring people together in harmony and gratitude.
