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 Aid El Segheir (End of Ramadan), Muslims fast during the day and feast at night and normal business patterns may be interrupted. Some disruption may continue into Aid El Segheir itself. Aid El Segheir and Aid El Kébir (Feast of Sacrifice) may last up to several days, depending on the region.
