Here Is How the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Is Celebrating Ramadan

    Ramadan is almost here folks and there are a ton of exciting things to look forward to. The Egyptian Museum seems to be sharing our enthusiasm, as they’ve prepared a celebration in their own style, starting this week.

    This Wednesday, the 2nd of May, the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir is organising a celebration under the name, Wahawy Ya Wahawy, Eyoooha. Actually we added that Eyoooha, it just seems rude to cut off the song there. Anyway, the celebration will include a series of artistic activities and educational workshops for kids and young students. It starts at 10 in the morning, and runs until 2 in the afternoon. reports the words of Sabah Abdel Razeq, Director of the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir, “the program will include a performance, held within the halls of the museum, telling the story of the Ramadan Lantern throughout different eras of Egyptian history.” Those will of course include the Islamic era, as well as the Greek and Roman, thereby allowing us to see the evolution of the Ramadan Lantern.

    Abdel Razeq adds that the celebration will shed light on ancient crafts used in manufacturing the lantern for Ramadan, and will do so through artistic workshops, to be held in the museum’s pergola. The workshops will be led by the artist, Marwa Abo El-Dahab.

    We sure admire all the initiatives that the Egyptian Museum and all tourist spots are taking here in Egypt. Here’s to hoping they keep on improving.
