Ramadan Karim

Ramadan Karim

Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.

Today is the start of the holy month of Ramadan in most of the Islamic countries :)

This is my annual visit to the lanterns shop at Dokki , it is their season , they know me and I became a regular visitor with my camera.

Most of their lanterns are beautiful handmade Egyptian ,they are expensive and mostly used in decoration in homes not for children because they are heavy.

Children buy the Chinese Plastic because they are like toys, they are made of plastic which is much lighter , the Chinese add to it nice 2008-08-30 001 047songs of Ramadan with cartoon characters like Mickey Mouse,Daisy,Donald Duck and Winnie the Pooh , the prices of the Chinese lantern is cheaper than the original Egyptian handmade one.

The industry of Ramadan lanterns is in danger despite its importance because of the Chinese invasion still it is trying to survive.Not even 100,000 traditional Chinese lanterns with their world fame will take the place of our beautiful lantern in our hearts.

Many people still love  this tradition lantern and appreciate it. Already I believe we can revive this industry 365 days not only in one season if we promote it just the Moroccan lanterns.

Ramadan Karim to all Muslims around the globe
