Gergean Its All About The Kids Celebrating Ramadan
Gergean is a traditional festival that has its roots in many Gulf countries. It is an opportunity for parents to show how proud they are of their children for fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. Children usually dress in traditional clothes and go around the neighborhood in groups holding small bags and singing special songs , Gergean is held on the 13th, 14th or the 15th of Ramadan when the moonis full.
Children go from one house to another and knock on neighbors’ doors asking for candy and nuts .
Children love it and they run around the neighborhood playing games with each other when they are done knocking on doors. They also get to show off their candy to each other. It’s like a holiday made especially for children to help them through their fast and encourage them to fast every year.
