Ramadan Special Packaging

Many products sold during Ramadan are presented in special Ramadan themed packaging, like this beautiful tin box of chocolate covered nuts by Jewels.  The blue and gold design is very appealing and I love how the shape of the box itself curves along with crescent moon.  Ramadan ended a couple of days ago for this year.

Ramadan Store Displays

For the monthlong Ramadan period here in Saudi Arabia, grocery stores will usually carve out an area for special Ramadan treats and sweets.  It is a time when families generally get together to break the day's fast at sunset. 

The day's fast is often broken with dates and buttermilk, followed by prayer, and then a full on feast of Ramadan favorites.  This year's Ramadan was different for most families due to the strict Covid-19 curfews in place, prohibiting people from being out and about hours before sunset.
