Ram Navami - Hindu Festival

Ram Navami is a Hindu festival, celebrating the birth of Lord Rama to King Dasharatha of Ayodhya. While the festival is particulary important to the Vaishnavite tradition of Hinduism, Ram Navami is a popular festival worshipped across the Hindu world. The holiday is celebrated on the ninth day of Chaitra month (the first month in the Hindu lunar calendar). It marks the culmination of the spring festival of Vasanta Navratri (Chaitra Navratri) which begins on Ugadi. Rama was the seventh incarnation of Vishnu. He was the hero of the Ramayana, the ancient Sanskrit epic.

Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha

If the first crescent of the new moon is seen at Mecca before sunset on the 29th day, then that month is deemed to have ended and the next month begins. If the moon isn't seen - for reasons such as heavy cloud cover - then the month carries on for one more day and the next month starts the day after that. Because Islam follows a lunar calendar, dates drift back by 11 days a year in the sun-based Gregorian calendar used by most of the rest of the Western world.
