Ramadan Egyptian-style


The Muslim holy month of Ramadan is under way world wide.

Although it is a time for fasting by day, it is at night when the celebrations and the feasting begins.
In Egypt the Ramadan Lanterns are lit and food delicacies offered to family and friends.

While Ramadan is a deeply religious festival it is also an excuse for everyone to try to forget their troubles and to count their blessings.

This year Ramadan falls in the summer and at the height of the tourist season, lending itself to being a star attraction for visitors to Cairo.

So tourists are entertained by traditional music with a modern twist – anything that will reel them in while giving them a better understanding of Egyptian customs and culture.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
