The lunar calendar is used in Islam to determine each of the religious holidays. As the 9th month of the lunar calendar is approaching, people all over the world are prepping for the next crescent moon…the crescent moon that marks the beginning of Ramadan.

Islamic patterned fabrics are turned into tents and lanterns that light up the streets…
Evening feasts are prepared and shared amongst family, friends and neighbors…
