Eid Al Adha takes place in the last month of Islamic Calendar. Since their calendar is based on the lunar cycle, the date of Eid Al Adha often shifts by 11 days earlier every year in the Gregorian calendar. The Gregorian calendar is based on solar cycle which relatively shows constant changes as compared to the lunar calendar.

Moreover, the dates of Eid Al Adha are mostly never known in advance. Only renowned Islamic committees announce the date of Eid depending on the position of moon observed by naked eyes.
