My mother prepare for that dat a week ago.She clean all of home and every part.Actually she always clean but ramadan feast is more special.After clean home she cook some special foods for guests.
Especially baklava and stuffed grape leaves.People but new clothes
for feast especially parents buy for kids.People buy bus ticket and reservation hotels a month ago because its hard to find them.
If do not go somewhere must buy sugars for kids and its explain why people call it sugar fest because childrens visit all home and take sugar.It can be strange to visit foreign houses but its traditions.
When I was child I did it many times and ate all of sugar in a day.
