Let’s celebrate Ramadan!

Posted on

Ramadan is more than abstaining from food or beverages during the day for those who belong to the Muslim faith. It is a time for contemplation and reflection that culminates in a great family celebration called Eid al-Fitr. This year Ramadan began on April 2nd and will end on May 2nd with the feast of Eid.
