On the 14th day of Ramadan, we celebrate Garangao, a fun tradition for children. Its a way to celebrate their efforts in fasting half way through the holy month. The word comes from "Gara”, a Khaliji word for the sound of things knocking together.
During Garangao, after the sunset prayer, children dress up in their traditional clothes, carry a decorated material bag, and walk around their neighborhoods singing the Garangao song, hitting stones together to create a rhythm. In the past they were given dates, rice and wheat, the ingredients used for a traditional Qatari dish called Harees, but nowadays children usually receive nuts and sweets.
