Although Eid al-Fitr is always around the same time of the Islamic calendar, the date on the Gregorian calendar shifts from year to year since the Gregorian calendar is a sun-oriented calendar also the Islamic time is a lunar calendar. This distinction implies Eid al-Fitr moves in the Gregorian calendar around 11 days consistently. The date of Eid al-Fitr may also shift from nation to nation contingent upon whether the moon has been located or not.

Note that these dates depend on astronomical calculations to attest each time, and not on the actual locating of the moon with the bare eyes. This approach is acknowledged by numerous yet is as yet being fervent.
