After a month of fasting, hundreds of thousands of Hui people who live in the Huihui and Huixin Villages of the Phoenix Town, Sanya and from Qinghai, Gansu, Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang Hui Autonomous Region flocked to local mosques at Phoenix Town to welcome the first day of fast-breaking festival on August 19.
The Fast-breaking Festival, which falls on the first day of the tenth month of the Islamic calendar, is one of the three most important festivals in the Islamic religion.
Ramadan is a festival of fasting and spiritual reflection. During Ramadan, the ninth month of the year on the Muslim calendar, all healthy adult Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, smoking and sex from sunrise to sunset every day.
The fast-breaking festival will last for three days. People will visit their relatives and friends and share delicacies that were prepared at least a week before the holiday.
Besides the festival ceremony, local Hui people also participate in recreational activities, such as watching the lion dance, singing local songs, performing martial arts, playing poker and visiting city parks.
