Many other Muslim countries are also celebrating the auspicious occasion today, while in some countries Saturday will be the Eid. The festival is marked with feasts and the meeting of families, relatives and friends, where they exchange greetings and gifts with each other.

However, because Ramadan follows the lunar Islamic calendar, it changes every year.

"We fast Ramadan because it's in the Islam religion".

Thousands of people gathered in Vancouver to celebrate Eid al-Fitr.

Typical sayings during the Eid holiday include "Eid Mubarak" which means "Blessed Eid" while another saying happens to be "Eid Said" which means "Happy Eid". "We don't celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr when the moon is sighted in Saudi Arabia, since there is a time difference between the two countries".

However, in Kerala, Eid will be celebrated on Friday as the moon was sighted in Kozhikode, a top cleric said.

In case the new moon is not sighted today then the First Day of Eid al Fitr 2018 will be on Saturday June 16, 2018. He said the government had an agreement with the Islamic Community which regulated their relations and under which Croatia financially supported Muslims' needs.

As in earlier years, Christians visit Muslim neighbors in several Kurdish-majority cities to congratulate them on the religious event and also to be part of the celebration.

The date of the festival typically varies from country to country, depending on whether the moon has been seen.

This is the second most important festival in the Islamic calendar.

After the Eid prayer, there was a bazaar with activities for children.

"We are all Filipinos who share one God, though we may call Him different names like Bathala, Allah or Diyos", he added. During this time, Muslims rejoice in the completion of the fast.

Religious believers are encouraged to take this trip at least once during their lives.
