Eid Al Fitr, a joyous festival marking the culmination of Ramadan, the holy month of fasting, is a time where families gather to break their fasts, share bountiful feasts, and exchange heartfelt gifts. It embodies a spirit of celebration and gratitude that resonates throughout the Muslim community.


Independence Day, observed every June, unites the people of Bahrain, setting aside differences, to revel in the country’s liberation from British rule.
