For bayram greetings, you can say:

- Bayramın kutlu olsun. (Have a happy Bairam)
- Bayramın mübarek olsun. (Have a blessed Bairam)

If you know somebody Turkish, Bairam greetings are very important. Don't miss that

Bairam is a kind of religious festival celebrated in Turkey (probably in other Muslim countries too). There are two bairams each year and this has an important place in Turkey, whether you are religious or not. At least there is no school or work in Bairams If you want, I can give more detailed information about the customs for Bairams and what they are all about.

I am interested to know more about the Bairam festivals. You say it happens 2 times a year. Is it always at the same time of the year or do the dates change? Are there other festivals in turkey that are important to know about? tesekkùrler!

We live in Fethiye southern Turkey and have just experienced 'Bayram'. We had a man drumming very loudly 1 hour before dawn to wake people up to eat every morning. This went on for the full month. There is also a gun fired at sundown so that the starvation periods ends and the people who are observing can eat. At the end of Bayram there is a holiday which is known as 'Seker Bayram' (Sugar Feast). An appropriate greeting is 'iyi Bayramlar'. At this time you give presents to the poor people and sweets to your neighbours and children passing your house. If as a foreigner you are lucky you may be invivited into a Turkish home to talk to them, drink tea and eat Baklava. 70 days after the end of Bayram they have another holiday which is a meat festival. At this time goats or sheep are killed for the feast.

Bayram is supposed to start 10 days earlier each year, but i don't know if this is always the case. It is possible for MS Outlook users to download the dates for Turkish public holidays into the calendar of the MS website.

Hope that this helps.
