For Muslims around the world the month of Ramadan is coming to a close on the 24th May, and to mark the end of this month of fasting and prayer is the celebration called Eid al-Fitr (also called Eid ul-Fitr), which means "Festival of the Breaking of the Fast." As you can imagine after a month of showing restraint from eating, preparing a big feast for the whole family is a big part of Eid al-Fitr!

But what else do Muslims do on this very important day? As well as celebration, it's also a day for reflection and prayer - many Muslims join together for prayer in Mosques, although sadly not this year;

 

 

Mehndi henna patterns are also put on hands for this celebration;
