Excitement fills the air as Pakistan prepares for Eid ul Fitr, the joyous festival marking the end of Ramadan. While the official holiday schedule hasn’t been finalized, reports suggest a potential six holidays for Pakistanis to celebrate.

Traditionally, Eid ul Fitr signifies the culmination of Ramadan, a month of spiritual reflection and fasting. This year, the festival is expected to fall around April 10th, based on the Lunar calendar introduced by the former Science and Technology Minister, Fawad Chaudhary, in 2019. According to this calendar, Ramadan will likely consist of 29 days, with Eid ul Fitr celebrations commencing on April 10th.

Preparations for Eid festivities often begin a day in advance, with families and communities coming together for decorations, traditional rituals, and culinary preparations. If the government announces a four-day holiday period from Tuesday, April 9th to Friday, April 12th, combined with the existing weekend holidays, Pakistanis would enjoy a generous six-day break to celebrate.

However, the final decision on the official holiday schedule rests upon consultations with the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) and other relevant authorities. The Cabinet Division’s preliminary holiday list suggests a tentative three-day Eid ul Fitr holiday period from April 10th to 12th. This, however, could change based on the official moon sighting.

As anticipation grows and preparations commence, all eyes are on the official announcements regarding the Eid ul Fitr 2024 holiday schedule and festivities. Stay tuned for updates, and get ready to celebrate this special occasion with loved ones!
