Dear Brother / Sister,
It is makruh tahriman (disliked close to forbidden) to fast on the first day of the Ramadan Festival and on the four days of the Feast of Sacrifice. There are also people who deem it forbidden to fast on those days. In this respect, they may be called forbidden fast. Those days are announced by Allah as festivals for His slaves.
There is no drawback in fasting on the second day of Ramadan Festival. May Allah accept it!..
