Ramadan is the ninth month on the Islamic calendar, which marks important holidays and events for Muslims (people who practice Islam). During Ramadan people fast, or refrain from eating and drinking, while it's light outside.
The end of this holy month of Ramadan is marked by a special celebration called 'Eid al -Fitr', the Festival of the Breaking of the Fast. This year it will be celebrated on either Wednesday 12th or Thursday 13th May, depending on the sighting of the moon!
