Public holiday note

Muslim festivals are timed according to local sightings of various phases of the moon and the dates given below are approximations. During the lunar month of Ramadan that precedes Djoulde Soumae (End of Ramadan), Muslims fast during the day and feast at night and normal business patterns may be interrupted. Some disruption may continue into Djoulde Soumae itself. Djoulde Soumae and Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) may last up to several days, depending on the region.
