Why does Ramadan start and end at different dates each year?


While it is well known that the start day is forever moving year by year, it is not always well known why this is so. The reason for the different days is because we use the Gregorian calendar which is a solar calendar but the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar. So while the date in the Islamic calendar stays the same, it moves 11 days in the Gregorian calendar.
