Ramadan starts with the crescent moon and ends with it. It is a time for all the moon worhippers to get to gether and worship the daughters of allah. Al-lat, Al-uzza and Manat, whom were the product of the moon goddess and the sun goddess. It is too bad allah was never god and mohammed was not God's prhopet.
