From Iraq and Afghanistan to Turkey and Singapore, Millions of Muslims around the world are celebrating the Eid al-Fitr festival. The timing of Eid al-Fitr, or "the festival of breaking the fast", can be tricky, as it is based on the sighting of the new moon, and it often varies from country to country. The holiday is usually celebrated for three days, although it can vary depending on the country. Celebrations begin with a special early morning prayer in mosques and open-air areas and later move on to feasts and festivals.
