_ Eid ul-Fitr is often
abbreviated to just Eid. It is a Muslim holiday that marks the end of
Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. Eid is an Arabic word
meaning 'festivity', while Fitr means 'to break the fast'. The date that
it is celebrated is determined by the new moon.
Eid al-Adha is a significant annual Islamic observance for many Muslims in Canada. It is also known as the Feast of Sacrifice or Festival of Sacrifice as it commemorates Ibrahim’s (Abraham) willingness to sacrifice his son to God.
