Via the On Faith blog at the Washington Post, behold the Empire State Building lit green for Eid last night:

 Empire State Building lit green for Eid al-Fitr

Daisy Khan, executive of the ASMA foundation, writes movingly of what seeing the emblematic skyscraper lit in commemoration of the holiday means to her as a proud muslim-American.

Street vendor Uighur muslims celebrate Eid in China, Iraqis defy the violence to celebrate in the streets, and Pakistanis gather on rooftops for moon-watching parties.

Don’t miss the BBC’s gallery of photos of Eid festivities from more places around the world, from Saudi Arabia to the Philipinnes, from Afghanistan to Albania.
