  • “Id al-Fitr, which marks the end of a period of daytime fasting, prayers and abstention from vices during the holy month of Ramadan, is the much-anticipated reward for the pious. The holiday is usually a time for family gatherings and outings, with children receiving new clothes and gifts. But across the Arab world it is also an excuse for parties and fun, especially for young people.�?
