Ramazan Bayrami: Three-day festival when sweets are eaten to celebrate the end of the fast of Ramadan month. Also known as "Şeker (sweets) Bayramı" since it's customary to offer candies to family members and friends that are visiting.
Kurban Bayrami: Four-day festival when sheep or cows are sacrificed and their meat distributed to the poor.
The dates of these religious festivals change according to the Islamic calendar and thus occur 10-11 days (exact difference between Gregorian and Lunar calendars is 10 days and 21 hrs) earlier each year.
