Malaysia – Next Big Celebration coming…. Hari Raya Puasa (1)

Malaysia is going to celebrate another big celebration in next coming months; Hari Raya Puasa is the joyous festival which celebrates the end of Ramadan. It occurs on the first day of the tenth month of Islamic lunar calendar when you can see the new moon.

As usual, the shopping complexes and all Muslims friends will start to prepare for their fasting month before the celebration of the joyous festival. The fasting month will start on the 10th Jul till 8th Aug this year and followed Hari Raya Puasa celebration by all Muslim and the rest of others races will also celebrate together with them.

It will be a 2 days holiday but the mass population transfer (unlike like in China) will happen a few days before that. Everyone will start their journey back home for the celebration and while others take opportunity to have a long weekend holiday.

Below you can see a hypermarket selling the Giant Bamboo torch where they are usually put it out on the perimeter of their house and lighted at night.
