7 Simple Ways to Celebrate Ramadan This Year
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and considered one of the holiest months of the year for Muslims. In the U.S., Ramadan begins around April 13, 2021 and ends around May 12, 2021 with Eid al-Fitr, or the Festival of Breaking Fast. Religious observers honor the month by fasting during daylight hours and devoting themselves to spiritual rejuvenation through reading the Qur'an and prayer. While those are traditional activities to commemorate Ramadan, there are more ways to celebrate, too.
