This is a temporary lot set up to sell lambs for a religious holiday celebration, somewhat along the lines of fireworks lots for the 4th of July or Christmas tree lots in December. Ramadan is when all Muslims fast during the daylight hours for a month. When Ramadan ends, there is a celebration which last for several days, when families get together. Lambs are sold to customers for slaughter. The meat is then shared with family, friends, and those less fortunate. Lamb is a very popular meat for celebrations in Saudi Arabia.
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. 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 OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
