Ramadan Kareem is similar to Christmas for Muslims. Minus the Santa Clause, celebrating Jesus’s birth, and giving gifts. Okay, maybe it’s nothing like Christmas, but it relates to Christmas because it is a time when people spend time with their families, give to the poor, and try to be a better person. The purpose is to fast for 30 days as an expression of their devotion to Allah. They fast from sun up to sun down. So depending on where you are in the world hours that you are fasting can be longer or shorter.
