      This you should know: for Ramada the fast lasts from dawn to dusk. This time of year at this latitude (40.7128° N) that means ~0535 to ~2010 hrs. That means no eating for 15'15". The infirmed and soldiers on duty are exempt. That's why when Ramadan falls in the spring incidence of terrorism increase: in order to gain exemption from the fast, many a young man "enlists," the flip side being that he then has to take orders from superior officers, just like a soldier on duty. By comparison when Ramadan falls in November once every seven years -- and daylight hours are shorter -- there's less terrorism.

          In an effort to return to the original subject....Have any Fox news anchors wished folks a happy Ramadan?
          Since when has it been the duty or responsibility of new anchors to wish members of any religious community greetings on account of some holiday? It is true we often hear news anchors wish people happy thanksgiving, but is it an overtly religious holiday? It isn't in Canada. In Canada it is more rooted in traditional harvest celebrations and celebrations of certain events like the end of the War of 1812 and the recovery of one of the Queen's children from a serious illness. Regarding public figures and media "wishing folks" a Merry Christmas, there has been a long and active campaign to prevent this by liberals especially, considering this to be an unwarranted bias towards one religion in what is supposed to be a secular state. Which is why we now have public figures say the blandly non-committal "Happy Holidays". So, considering this, wouldn't the OP, whom I suspect is liberal in persuasion, not be happy that Fox news anchors ignored Ramadan?

            Marks point somewhere above deserves to be repeated, you don't wish anyone a "happy" Ramadan, it's not a holiday, the "Sugar celebration" at the end, is the time for good wishes and family reunions - I think..

              I think the original post was asking if Fox News mentions a major feast/date/whatever for one minority religion should they mention such dates for other minority religions.

              My first thought is who cares?
              My second is that it's great that people are so comfortable that this is an issue for them.

                    I passed the point of no return years ago. Nowadays my only saving grace is that I generally avoid News Corp outlets.

                        Why should I know when Ramadan fast ends? Im not a Muslim. I posted the question as I was driving home from the casino.

                        That was an unexpected response from you. Terrorism and Ramadan? Soldiers on duty? Thats the type of talk that I dont agree with you on...and thats because I do not associate religion with crime even though religious non Muslims have committed crimes in the name of their religion. Remember the thread you made on how Jews control NYC or similar, even though it may have been tongue in cheek or w/e from you, I disagree with that type of approach you take.

                        Sure Muslim criminals exist, so do Christian and Atheist criminals. In my area a non Muslim man lit recently his girlfriend on fire at a local Tim Hortons coffee shop. Every day in the USA a non Muslim white man beats his wife to a pulp. Crime is a worldwide issue.

                        Many a young man do not enlist in AQ, ISIL, Taliban , etc for Ramadan. Those AQ groups are a total joke and do nothing these days, those groups are similar to the mafia. They are not soldiers, they are not officers they have no international standing. Yes they are Muslims but even though it was not a Theocratic war, WW2 saw more Christians engaged in Holy War against Jews then probably all of the anti Semitic Muslims in all human history. Christians of today are more advanced, but just 70 years ago the Christians of the Reich made AQ look like a cakewalk.

Fasts are not intended to be fun and wishing someone a happy one would be somewhat crass. People do wish a happy eid but that's not until June.
                            Ramadan is a Holiday and a fast.

                            Yes Muslims in my area even are ok with Happy Ramadan.

                              i don't think they issued a traditional adha. Probably would have pissed off the neighbor, but the prayers within the mosque were audible from my apartment. They had a soothing quality as recall.
                              Thats interesting. I honestly dont know how I would feel living right by a Mosque. My sister is Muslim, and she lives right across the street from an old Polish Church very historic it is btw.

                              I worked at an Islamic school for two years. I can tell you I have only had really one bad conversation with a Muslim guy. The guy was one of those former drinkers turned into a Muslim... by ceasing alcohol it seemed he thought he was better then drinkers and thats a turn off let me tell you. This guys name was Ibrahim and his friend was kind of similar the three of us would speak openly with each other, let me say Ibrahim talked alot like Trung Si And Iljadw two sides of the same coin.

                              I have played poker and had a few drinks with Muslims.

                                Funny thing is that some Muslims put on weight during Ramadan. They overeat at fast break time.
