Muslims across the world have celebrated Eid al-Fitr this weekend.

The festival marks the end of Ramadan, a holy month where Muslims won’t eat or drink between dawn and sunset. This practice is known as fasting.

Things have been a little different this year due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Traditionally, the festival is marked with prayers in mosques and visits to friends and family.

But with the the social distancing rules in place this couldn’t be done.

Families still celebrated at home and found ways to enjoy the festival together.
