ramadan mubarak

Today marks the start of Ramadan. The Muslim calendar uses a lunar system, which means that this holiday shifts by about ten days every year, so it’s not entirely surprising that there’s some disagreement about when the holiday starts. Some purists insist on relying on moon-sighting to predict the start of the month while others rely on scientific calculations. At least this year there seemed to be widespread agreement between the two camps that Ramadan starts today. So, Ramadan Mubarak.
