During the lunar month of Ramadan that precedes Ramazan Bayrami (End of Ramadan), Muslims fast during the day and feast at night and normal business patterns may be interrupted. Some disruption may continue into Ramazan Bayrami itself. Ramazan Bayrami and Kurban Bayrami (Feast of Sacrifice) may last up to several days, depending on the region.
