Eid Al Fatr marks the end of Ramadan with 3 day celebrations and marks the end of month long fasting during Ramadan.
The celebrations are a time for family and of forgiveness and of giving thanks and many Muslims give donations of food to those less fortunate than themselves.
I've only been in Dubai for the last week of Ramadan and what I've learnt from speaking to shop workers and taxi drivers has been interesting.
There has been one thing I've been puzzled by and if anyone could let me know the answer I'd be grateful is when you go to a coffee shop that is licensed to serve take away food and drinks during Ramadan and have signs for 'non muslims and children only' is why they have covers over the food counters, yet the supermarkets have open fronts and anyone can go in and shop and purchase any foods they like during the day, yet they don't cover their food.
BTW Muslims can clean their teeth during Ramadan, just not in day light hours as if they swallowed the toothpaste they would be breaking their fast.
