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.
