Candies and chocolate are a favorite treat during the holy month of Ramadan. This is a special Ramadan booth set up in a mall to sell sweets. The young man in the striped shirt works for his dad during this time. He might be about 11 or 12 years old. This photo was taken at about 10pm on a week night. Saudi children are out of school until Ramadan is over. Most people here stay up pretty late at night during Ramadan and sleep during the day when Muslims are to abstain from food, drink, sex, and other things like anger or pleasurable activities. It’s not unusual to see children out at 2 or 3 am during this time. The printed red and blue tablecloth in front is a common Ramadan sight as well. Many businesses decorate their places using this print, to dress up the businesses for the holidays. Ramadan officially ended yesterday. Eid Mubarak to all my Muslim friends!

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.
