The celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr begins with the sighting of the moon. People always have special plans for “Moon Mice”. After breaking the fast for 28 days in Ramadan, people go to open spaces to look for the crescent on the western horizon. Cloudy skies can frustrate them, but they do their best to find the moon in a clean environment. After seeing the moon, they hug each other and exchange Eid Mubarak. If the moon is not visible in any area, people are restless and sit in front of the TV and wait for the official announcement. However, after the announcement, it doesn’t matter that people leave their homes in the middle of the night to meet their loved ones. Young people have their own way of celebrating the moon night. They take out their motorbikes and start one-wheeling and the whole city starts making noise with the roar of silencer-less bikes.

Although the moon night is not part of the holy festival of Eid, it is still part of the trend and is celebrated by Muslims around the world. People stay up late and the markets are open.
