Ramadan is the month each year when Muslims worldwide fast from sun up to sun down as required by one of the five pillars of Islam. When it concludes, there is a three day celebration called Eid when food and family get togethers are plentiful.
The last week or so of Ramadan, “Little Lamb Lots” appear in empty parcels all over the city of Jeddah, much like fireworks sales lots for 4th of July or Christmas tree sales lots during December in the states. The lambs (or goats or even cows) are brought into the city from nearby farms and are bought by Muslims, who will then divvy up the meat to share with family, neighbors, and those who are less fortunate.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
