Celebration of Eid Ul Adha and Gregorian Calendar:

Muslims celebrated Eid ul Adha according to the lunar calendar due to which it is always on the same date that is the 10th of the Dhul Hijjah. But according to the Gregorian calendar each year it comes on a different date.  Because the lunar calendar is according to moon whereas the Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar. And it is proven that the lunar calendar is approximately 11 days shorter than solar calendar (January-December), as it is based on the phases of the moon. Due to this reason each year Eid ul Adha falls on two to four different solar calendar dates because the boundary of crescent visibility is not linked with international date lines.

Every county has its own religious affairs committee that goes for moon sight on the 29th of each lunar month. The three days after the Eid are also a part of the celebration.
