The three day bayram also known as Seker Bayram lasts for three days.

Seker Bayram is a holiday celebrated by Muslims and it follows Ramazan (30 days of fast – nothing is consumed from sunrise to sunset).

As with all holidays this is a time to solve any disputes and problems you may have with other people. During Seker Bayram sweets are eaten and the younger members visit the older members of the family. Most people actually gain weight during Ramazan due to the numerous invitations to Iftar (evening meal to break the days past) – copious amounts of delicious food are presented for guests and it is hard to control oneself after fasting all day.
