The new wave of festive cheer is being observed as the holy month of Ramadan, also known as Ramazan or Ramzan or Ramzaan will start from April 2. It is the holy month in the Muslim Lunar Calendar. In the Islamic culture, it is considered to be the holiest month that spans 29-30 days. People observe fasts for the entire month of fasting and on the last day, Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated. It is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is celebrated by people belonging to the Muslim community all around the world. This annual observance is regarded as one of the five pillars of Islam. It lasts between one sighting of the crescent moon and the next.
