For Muslims Ramadan is considered a sacred period when the entire community, including tourists, shows tolerance abstaining from food consumption in public and during the daytime – one can only imagine the joy of Ramadan's end, truly a feast for one's stomach and soul. Devoted Muslims traditionally start celebrations with worship services and sermons usually held in large open spaces. The solemn prayer services continue with congratulations, gift giving, and of course feasting on lamb dishes and other delicacies. Every family kills a lamb or other livestock and shares the meat with guests and the poor. The main specialty is the traditional Jordanian meal Mansaf made of lamb with fermented yogurt sauce. The vivid and vibrant festivities stretch over nearly 10 days in July.
