Girgai3an



the 13th of ramadam marks the 1st day of gergai3an.. where kids walk around houses asking for sweets, doing it the modern way with their nannies and a driver tagging along!

those 3 days used to be the highlight of ramadan when i was a kid.. awal ma e5alli9 il fu6oor i'll be ready with my gergai3an bag hanging around my neck waiting for my mother's permission for me to start walking around the blocks of our area with my neighboring friends..

6ab3an kanat 3indina 5i66a mu3ayanah bil tegirgi3.. en5ish il byoot illy ta36ey ashya2 san3ah 7ag a5ir shay! there is this one house that gives away kitkat + 1 bafak! hehehe allah ya wanasatna!

aaahhh the golden old days =)
