It's Not Eid al-Fitr for Everyone
There are a handful of mosques in Tokmok (and elsewhere in Kyrgyzstan, for all I know) that are not celebrating Eid today. They'll wait till tomorrow after the moon is sighted. I honestly don't know how this affects people's celebrations. Do you visit friends and family who attend a mosque who hasn't finished Ramadan yet? It's not very many mosques in town that are waiting, but I wish I knew if it made much of a difference.
