White House forgoes Ramadan dinner for first time in two decades

The annual tradition started in 1996 when Hillary Clinton had hosted a Ramadan Eid celebration dinner.
Balloons, body paint, joy and mourning - across the world Sunday, Muslims gathered to celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadan, and the festivities took almost as many shapes as the places they were held.
On Saturday, Saudi Arabia's Supreme Court announced this year's Eid al-Fitr would begin on Sunday, June 25, according to state-run Saudi News Agency. The iftar dinner at the White House is usually attended by prominent members of the Muslim community, diplomats and Congress members.
"Now, as they commemorate Eid with family and friends, they carry on the tradition of helping neighbours and breaking bread with people from all walks of life". Muslims use a slightly different calendar to mark their yearly celebrations, so Ramadan gets moved forward by 11 days each year. Many indulge in the final celebrations for Eid with last-minute shopping for clothes and making final preparations for sheer khurma, the special kheer made on the day of Eid.
It's not the first time the administration has broken the White House's Ramadan tradition.
