It's a big weekend for Muslims around the world who will be celebrating the festival of Eid ul Fitr today and in the coming days. The "Festival of Breaking the Fast" follows the end of Ramadan, during which time Muslims will have fasted from dawn to sunset during the daylight hours, only eating and drinking at night. They will also have been aiming for spiritual improvement, thinking about their own self-development and charitable acts for those around them.
So no wonder that Eid is filled with excitement for more than 1.6 billion Muslims around the world along with their friends, neighbours and colleagues. They will have woken up this morning and many may have attended Eid prayers in their local mosques and communities. The day may be filled with present-giving, family get-togethers, celebrations and of course eating and drinking!
Eid is also a time of spiritual renewal and new beginnings. Many countries will mark this with lights like lanterns and fireworks. And of course, children are at the forefront of every moment of celebration.
This is truly a global festival that spans every country and city and community around the world. And with this global spirit in mind, we at Ogilvy wish everyone observing Eid ul Fitr a wonderful and blessed Eid, and we bring you eid wishes from around the world!
