Ramadan Marches Towards Summer 10 Days @ a Time

Every year Muslim people around the world celebrate Ramadan. Every year Ramadan begins approximately 10 days earlier then the year before due to the differences in the solar year and the lunar year. It occurred to me that in 2015 Ramadan will be occurring during the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. This is rather significant since the faithful must fast from sun up to sun down. Just thought that was interesting.

humans and their silly ancient myths and rituals.

I do believe the fasting includes bread and dates, however. I think I could survive on that for three long days. :)
