Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan and the beginning of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic Hijri calendar. It starts the day after the observation of the crescent moon, which usually occurs one night after the new moon.
“Eid Mubarak”, an Arabic phrase meaning “blessed feast/festival,” is the most common way used to wish someone a Happy Eid. Although Eid Mubarak is well-known, it is not used everywhere.
“Bayramınız Kutlu Olsun” (May your Eid be blessed) or “iyi Bayramlar” (Good Eid days) are two Turkish phrases that are used, and people in Nigeria greet one another by saying “Barka Da Sallah,” which means “Blessed Eid Prayers.”
“Feliz Eid” is used in Spanish-speaking nations, whereas “Selamat Hari Raya” is used in Malay-speaking countries.

Playability playgroups are run in Eden, Cobargo, Bega & Bermagui every week. They provide an opportunity for children and their families to socialise in a relaxed environment while engage in imaginative play, cooking and craft activities. We finish off with group time where we enjoy stories, songs, bubbles and more. Come along and see what’s in the dilly bag!
