Muslim festivals are timed according to local sightings of various phases of the moon and the dates given are approximations.
During the lunar month of Ramadan that precedes Eid al-Fitr, Muslims fast during the day and feast at night and normal business patterns may be interrupted.
Some disruption may continue into Eid al-Fitr itself.
Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha may last up to several days, depending on the region.
