A Shiny Hilal, a beautiful Fanoos, a decorated home and a happy family preparing for it.
This is the spirit that Ramadan brings every year when it’s the time.
Everyone around the world celebrates this special occasion of the year in their own way, but, in Egypt, Ramadan sparkes differently than any other spot in the world. The streets are lightened up and all dazzled to welcome the holy month, IT IS A MUST!

That’s why we decided to offer you some easy ideas to create your vibes and decorate your home. Even in hard times when Corona is not allowing you to go out to buy the ready-made decoration, you can still make your own with our DIY list.
At the beginning of the Holy month we all put plans for every day of the 30 days. Creating your own calendar with simple colored papers would encourage you to achieve the everyday goal.
