There was sort of a turmoil in the determination of the “real” date for Idul Fitri. It was not until the 30th of August that the news from the TV came that the REAL IdulFitri would be on the ! of September and NOT on 31st August this year. The confusion was brought about whether the new moon was already visible or not. The definition would have been that IF 5% of the moon would be visible than this is a sign that the new month had started.
This turmoil made it very inconvenient for especially the housewives who had already prepared everything for August 31st and than hear that she had to put it all in the fridge for the next day. Especially for those who had a big event planned with catering service etc.etc.
