Muslims celebrate Eid, marking Ramadan's end

Published: Updated:

Muslims around the world are celebrating the Eid al-Fitr holiday, a time for family and feasting, to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan and its daytime fasting.

Mosques hold special prayers at sunrise, and children are often given gifts or a special allowance. The holiday lasts one to three days, and is eagerly anticipated after the month of fasting.
