Bahrain, like other predominantly Muslims nations, celebrates Eid al-Fitr on the first day following the “holy fast” of Ramadan. The holiday officially begins with the sighting of the new moon that marks the beginning of the month of Shawwal.

This is a big shopping time in Bahrain. Everyone one is out and about buying new clothing to wear for Eid. The season lasts three days, so it is customary to buy three new sets of clothes. Young girls may also stop to have their hands and wrists decorated with intricate “henna” designs. And “Eid Mubarak!”, meaning “Blessed Holiday!”, is shouted out to even strangers.

Another custom is to clean out your house thoroughly before Eid al-Fitr. After all, relatives will be arriving to visit for three days in a row! You want to keep them happy with food, fellowship, and a clean environment.
