Hari Raya Aidilfitri – 2020 Public Holiday Dates, Singapore

This holiday is celebrated during the first day of the Syawal in the 10th month of the Islamic calendar. The Hari Raya Aidilfitri is a celebration that marks the end of one month of fasting. Local Singaporeans consider the day as the biggest day of celebration and all Muslims celebrate it.

The day is a public holiday in Singapore and is marked with a huge range of food stalls being erected around the country where you can find food such as beef, rice cakes and sweets.

Most people who celebrate the day start before the first day. Muslims become excited and they start to prepare their homes for the celebration and therefore decorate their houses and shopfronts in the lead up to the day.

On the morning of the set day, the faithful wear new clothing and visit the mosque to pray. Here, they thank Allah, then ask for forgiveness from elders. They return to their homes and visit friends and relatives. Many also visit the graves of their ancestors.

If you happen to visit Singapore during the month of fasting, you have a chance to get and experience one of Malay’s unique ethnic culture in contemporary Singapore.
