Philadelphia Schools Add Two Muslim Holidays

Philadelphia Schools Add Two Muslim Holidays:
Philadelphia school district officials announced Tuesday that they will be adding two Muslim holidays to their calendar. 

The two holidays to be added, which won't take effect until 2017-2018 school year, are Eid al-Fitr, celebrated at the conclusion of Ramadan, and Eid al-Adha, which concludes the annual Hajj pilgrimage. Similar to Easter, both holidays fall on different days every year and will be adjusted accordingly each calendar cycle.
