I think Ramadan is silly to the same extent that any secular or religious observance is. People choose to do things and to challenge themselves for so many reasons that to single out Ramadan for ridicule seems pointless. As long as what a person does is of their own volition and affects no-one but themselves then I really do not care.

The only interaction I've had with Ramadan was when asking a waiter in a Thai restaurant a few weeks ago about how busy it was. He explained that it was the last weekend evening before Ramadan and so many muslims were making the most of it. He said he was not looking forward to working with food all day when Ramadan started and I commiserated, especially as the food was particularly excellent.

I somehow forgot to call him a fucking religious idiot, I guess my atheist membership is revoked.
