Eid ul-Fitr is a Muslim holiday celebrated when Ramadan, the month of fasting, finishes.[1] Muslims do not fast on Eid ul-Fitr as it is not allowed. When you see the new moon after Ramadan, the next day is Eid ul-Fitr. Eid ul-Fitr lasts three days. During this festival, children knock on doors and take chocolate, money, sugar from the other people. Kids kiss adults' hands. Everyone visits each other. People forgive each other and families meet together.
