Ramadan is a month of fasting in which they don't eat much; however during Eid they eat lots. During Ramadan muslims can't eat while the sun is up; once the sun sets the fast is broken with a feast known as iftar. The meal usually starts with dates and sweet drinks that provide quick energy boosts. In the morning, muslims get up before the sunrise for suhoor, which is a breakfast type meal. They eat a big breakfast of foods full of protein to keep their energy going all day. At the end of a month of fasting, families, friends, and neighbors gather together and feast. This large feast is called Eid Al-Fitr. On Eid they eat foods such as freash seasonal fruits and veggies, chabbakia, paomo, and many other delicious foods. This month of fasting helps people grow closer to each other and Allah.
