Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Fitr, the festival commemorating the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

Eid al-Fitr marks the end of a month-long fast from consuming liquids and food, and partaking in sexual activity, from sunrise to sunset. 
Muslim families and communities across the world gather to celebrate with prayers, feasts and festivals.
The Eid al-Fitr holiday stretches for three days, with the start date varying from country to country.
