Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri

It's that time of year again when our Muslim friends and readers celebrate the culmination of 1 month of fasting and praying which ends in the Hari Raya celebration. 

Although the official celebrations lasts 2 days , 30 and 31 August, a number of  my Muslim friends have told me that the celebration will last 1 month , equaling the 1 month of prior  fasting.  I'm not quite sure if this is the norm or an established practice  or if this is really  true l but I do find it a trite unreal . I think this would definitely defeat the whole  purpose of fasting. 

Could anyone of my Muslim readers enlighten me on this ? 

I'm still making my rounds of the Malaysian 'open house '  season and will come back with some pictures soon.

Till then, wishing all my Muslim friends, readers and browsers " SELAMAT HARI RAYA IDIL FITRI ' and  Eid Ul Mubarak

Happy reading and painting
