This Ramadan–> Try to get away from shirk as far as possible.

Ramadan is the month in which Allah revealed Quran on us :

“The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Quran, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong). So whoever of you sights (the crescent on the first night of) the month (of Ramadan), he must fast that month, and whoever is ill or on a journey, the same number (of days which one did not fast must be made up) from other days.

Allah intends for you ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you. (He wants that you) must complete the same number (of days), and that you must magnify Allah for having guided you so that you may be grateful to Him” (2: 185).

As Quran is a book of hidaiath and the biggest message it gives us to stay away from shirk so in this Ramadan we should make a pledge with ourselves to get away from shirk as far as possible and associate no partners with Him.

As it is taught us in the Quran to invite Ahl e Kitab towards Tauheed:

O People of the Book! Let us come to a mutual agreement, that we shall worship and obey none but God. That neither shall we ascribe divinity to anyone beside Him, nor shall we take human beings from among ourselves as our lords beside God.” And if they turn away, then say, “Bear witness that it is we who have surrendered ourselves unto Him.”(3:64)

Also one of the most common type of Shirks we see in darbars,shrines and other places is asking help from graves and sufis which is condemned in Quran in the words:

Those whom you call upon besides Allah, [such as mystics and saints], are people like you. Go ahead and call upon them, let them respond by helping you if you are true in your belief”(7:194)

Do they ascribe to Him as partners things that can create nothing, but are themselves created”(7:191)

“Call upon those whom you imagine beside Allah! They have not an atom’s weight of power either in the heavens or in the earth, nor have they any share in either, nor does He need any of them as a helper.”(34:22)

Also there is a good question-answer video on this topic:
