In Pakistan, Eid ul-Fitr is marked by religious fervor and broad spirits. The national holiday is observed on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal, which follows the holy month of Ramadan. Ramadan is a month of fasting, prayer, and devotion. It is one of the most significant Muslim observances.

The government has announced 4 Eid holidays this year. Although the celebration lasts three days, the religious activities at a local mosque or prayer ground take up most of the first day. At the start of Eid ul-Fitr, the men are the only ones who go to offer their Eid prayers.
The remainder of the celebration is focused on food and companionship. This time of year, Muslims are expected to offer zakat al-fitr, which is a food gift to the impoverished. Everyone also prepares special dinners at home and invites friends, neighbors, and family members to join them.
