One of two major holidays that Muslims around the world celebrate is Eid Al-Fitr, which literally means the festival of breaking the fast. It begins with the waxing crescent moon on the final day of fasting, heralding the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

The three-day festival witnessed more than a billion Muslims celebrate the end of Ramadan with their friends and families all over the globe. Here in the Arab World, millions took part in this year’s Eid prayers, headed home, had a cup of tea with milk and some kahk, or Eid cookies, made themselves comfortable in a brand new outfit, then headed to visit family and friends.

Here are some pictures showing how the Arab region celebrated Eid.
