Ramadan is primarily a focus on spirituality, however the overall atmosphere is very festive. Shopping and eating out are popular activities with mall opening times adjusting for the Holy month. Shops remain closed in the mornings but stay open until 2:30 in the morning or even later. Restaurants are particularly busy at Iftar (breaking the fast at sunset) and Suhoor (the last meal before beginning the fast, before dawn). Shop windows focus on Ramadan with promotions targeting customers for Eid also.
