Holiday is declared in educational institutions and government offices, on the occasion of Ramadan. Bakra-Eid is the 'feast of sacrifice', celebrated from the tenth to the twelfth day in the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah. Celebrated after the fasting month of Ramzan, Ramadan encompasses a number of rituals that are performed on specific time.
