As you may or may not know, the Moslem community are nearly finishing Ramadan. This means that the feast is coming soon... Yippee!
The feast after Ramadan is one of the important events over here. It is called "Eid El Feter " or the Feast of Breakfast. People celebrate finishing the Holy Month of Ramadan and being good Moslems for a whole month. The main thing that we all have to do in the feast is eat cookies! There are special cookies that are baked for the feast and everyone has to have them on the breakfast of the first day of the feast and over the coming few days.
This feast lasts for three days plus the last night of Ramadan and the whole country takes these four days off. The feast will start on Tuesday 30th September (tomorrow) and ends by the morning of Saturday 4th October. But because it continues over the weekend it also includes Monday 6 October which is a Public Holiday (Victory Day).
The government has announced that the Public Holiday will be from Tuesday 30th September till Tuesday 7th October where everything should get back to normal and banks, companies and offices should all be open again.
