Eid al-Fitr 2017

June 26, 2017 (depends on location). Immediately following Ramadan is the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of the fast. Note that in the Muslim calender, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Muslims will celebrate Eid al-Fitr on the sunset of Sunday, June 25th. This celebration involves big family gatherings and gifts for children, and can last up to 3 days.

Eid al-Fitr in 2017 is June 26th, based on the dates adopted by the Fiqh Council of North America for the celebration of Eid al-Fitr. Note that in the Muslim calender, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Muslims will celebrate Eid al-Fitr on the sunset of Sunday, June 25th. Note that these dates are based on astronomical calculations to affirm each date, and not on the actual sighting of the moon with the naked eyes. This approach is accepted by many, but is still being hotly debated.
