This Week
  • Eid Al-Fitr Mubarak!

    Eid al-Fitr is an Islamic holiday marking the end of the month-long daily fasts of Ramadan. Muslims start the day with congregational prayer, followed by gathering with friends and family and gift-giving. Although traditions vary, after a month of abstaining from it during daylight hours, food is often at the heart of Eid celebrations.

    This year, Eid begins the evening (after sunset) of Wednesday 5/12 and is on Thursday 5/13.
