Ramadhan . Muslims visit family members, enjoy special meals together and wear new clothes. Children receive gifts of money from their relatives. Amusement rides for children are set up in the streets, and people watch fireworks at night.
The celebration lasts for three days (sometimes four), but if it falls in the middle of the week, shops and schools may stay closed for the entire week.
Photo was taken during a clear night with two different exposures, I post processed both of them to create the fog or mist in the top.

The photo was taken by my sister and post processed by me, they were wearing those outfits (National uniform) for their school "Gerge'aan" party.
Gerge'aan could be the Islamic version of "Halloween: except children wear the national uniform instead of scary outfits..
They don't need to wear scary things, they are already are LOL
Children celebrates Gerge'aan two weeks after the beginning of the Islamic Month Ramadhan .
Note. The word "Gerge'aan" is widely used in Kuwait, other Islamic countries use different words.
