Google celebrates Ramadhan with special landing page

Google has set up a special landing page for Ramadhan, which Muslims are required to observe by fasting during daylight hours. The page offers “more ways to get together during Ramadan,” which is often a time for post-nightfall family get-togethers and communal meals, as well as hangouts with celebrity chefs from Southeast Asia.
