EID al-Fitr Holidays 2023 - Upcoming Long Weekend

In Saudi Arabia, a three-day holiday is anticipated to be observed in honor of Eid al-Fitr in 2023.

The religious celebration unfolds in the Islamic month of Shawwal and the first day following Ramadan's one-month period of fasting and prayer.

Eid-al-Fitr Holidays in Saudi

Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr dates be officially published, based on relevant and important moon sighting.

Religious scholars work late into the night to identify the precise start date of Ramadan.

The exact dates can vary, albeit usually only by one or two days at most, as they must keep track of precise sightings tied to the phases and cycles of the moon.

Ramadan 2023 will begin either on Wednesday, March 22nd, or on Thursday, March 23rd.

Accordingly, Eid-al-Fitr may most likely fall on the 20th of April, 2023.

The result would be a three-day holiday in Saudi Arabia, which is what would happen as follows from Sunday, April 23, to Tuesday, April 25.
