Malaysia is well-known for its multi-ethnic culture, with the many ethnic groups maintaining separate cultural identities. At this time of year, the Muslim community in Malaysia in particular and around the world in particular is happily welcoming the Hari Raya Aidifitri, marking the end of their Ramadan.

The festival is considered as a joyous, warm event because it marks the end of a Muslim vegetarian month. During this festival, Malaysians celebrate with their traditional dishes.

This is also a family reunion. Relatives meet, greet, and pray at the cathedral for the whole month.

During the festival, children are given lucky money in the blue envelopes and families often wear traditional costumes with the same color to show solidarity.

If you meet Malaysian friends on this occasion, do not forget to greet them by saying Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri.-VNA
