Hari Raya Puasa (Eid al-Fitr) marks the end of fasting for the month of Ramadan for Muslims in Singapore. Traditionally, Muslims in Singapore adorns their finest traditional clothing for the special occasion, pay each other visits, and bring with them lovely festive gifts such as flower arrangements, Hari Raya gift hampers, sweets, cakes and more.
