    Feast of the Breaking of the Fast. Also known as Lesser Bayram. Celebrated at the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting. Begins upon sighting of the crescent moon and lasts for three days. In Muslim-majority areas, businesses are closed and invitations are extended to family, neighbors, and friends to join in the celebrations. Children receive gifts and sweets. Almsgiving is required prior to attending the morning feast prayer, in remembrance of the poor.
