The sugar feast is the closure of Ramadan
The name Sugar Festival is the Dutch translation of Id-Al-Fitr and begins as the new moon can be seen. The feast is at the end of Ramadan, the Islamic fasting period. The sugar festival begins on the morning of the 1st day of the 10th month and can last several days. During this time the family is visited and a lot of sweets are eaten and gifts are exchanged. Not everyone agrees with the appellation of sugar, because it has too much relates to food, for these people ' The Little Feast ' is the most common name (the sacrificial feast is the Big party).
