Eid Al Fitr is the celebration and holiday that marks the end of Ramadan – the holy month of fasting. Eid is an Arabic word for ‘festivity’ while ‘Fitr’ means ‘to break the fast’. Eid Al Fitr is also known as the lesser Eid, compared to Eid Al Adha or the Greater Eid, which follows the Hajj.
The Dubai Festivals & Retail Establishment has unveiled the main attractions of "Eid in Dubai" to mark festivities coinciding with Eid Al Fitr for 2014.
