The national holiday comes on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal, immediately following the holy month of Ramadan and month-long period of fasting, prayer and devotion. It is one of the most important of all Muslim commemorations.
Idi Ramazon is a regular part of the holiday repertoire in the largely Muslim country of Tajikistan. Over 80 percent of the population is Muslim and looks forward to celebrating this holiday every year.
After the strict fasting and other restrictions of Ramadan, everything turns to joyous indulgence on the first day of Shawwal, which is the date of Idi Ramazon. The first three days of Shawwal are a part of the traditional celebrations.
Attending mosque for prayers and a sermon and heading home for a festive meal are staples of Idi. But many also use the time off work and school to travel afar to visit the homes of parents and siblings. This can lead to high traffic. Most businesses shut down for the day, and transportation may operate on altered schedules. And this only increases the flurry and potential confusion. But Eid is worth it in the eyes of the celebrants.
