On Thursday night Barack Obama praised the move to make the blassed Muslim Eid a national holiday.
NDTV reported, via Religion of Peace:

President Barack Obama on Thursday wished Muslims in America and around the world “Eid Mubarak!” or a blessed Eid, praising efforts to recognize the end of Ramadan as a holiday.

“The holiday is a reminder to every American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs,” he said in a statement that also hailed New York City’s decision to add Eid to the official school calendar.

That, he said, was “an acknowledgement of the great diversity and inclusiveness that adds to the richness of our nation.”

Mayor Bill de Blasio in March made New York the first major city in America to mark the end of Ramadan and the end of the pilgrimage to Mecca as a school holiday.
