    I've been looking at Omani celebrations.

    National Holidays

    New Year’s Day January 1

    NATIONAL DAY

    National Day and birthday of Sultan Qaboos on November 18.
    National Day is a big thing in Oman, a celebration of Sultan Qaboos's birthday and the country itself. The formal celebrations are moved to a different location around the country each year. There are usually camel races, traditional dancing, and lots of lights strung about. The evening is completed with a show of fireworks. Images of the Sultan and the Omani flag are erected all over the country.

    RAMADAN

    Ramadan is the month during which Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, and feast from dusk until dawn. Normal business patterns may be interrupted, many restaurants close and it is illegal for Muslims and non-Muslims to eat, drink or smoke in public. Alcohol is not served publicly at any time during Ramadan. Shopping centres are open late (LOL some things are the same world wide).

    EID AL FITR

    Eid Al Fitr is a three-day celebration following Ramadan. It is a festive family time during which Muslims do not fast, in fact, it is a time for feasting. The first day of Eid begins before dawn. Muslims gather in large outdoor areas for the first prayer of the day. Returning home from prayer, Muslims spend the day greeting friends and family. Homes are busy with visitors arriving throughout the day. Sweets, fruits, and snacks are offered to all and gifts are often given to children.

    Events celebrated in Oman are generally Muslim festivals and feasts. Exact dates change from year to year according to the Islamic lunar calendar. The following events are public holidays, and move forward by approximately 11 days each year. Ramadan (Month of fasting and feasting)

    On a side note, this isn't Omani but I can't resist sharing it. Hope lives!

    The Holiday of Holidays: Jews,Christians and Muslims celebrate together in Haifa
    Posted by Amtul Q Farhat



    Source: Live Leak: A parade of performers dressed in costumes representing the season’s various holidays gathered in the Israel northern city of Haifa for a festive celebration of the region’s religiously diverse community.

    Video: http://www.themuslimtimes.org/2012/12/religion/the-holiday-of-holidays-jewschristians-and-muslims-celebrate-together-in-haifa

    The annual festival, known as the Holiday of the Holidays, celebrates Christian Christmas, Muslim Eid al-Adha and Jewish Hanukkah.

    While the festival attracted plenty of Muslims residents this year, Eid al-Adha was not actually celebrated because it took place in October.

    Renaissance Day, Oman –A Yearly Celebration




    Today, July 23 2012, is a holiday in the Sultanate of Oman. This year it occurs on the 3rd day of Ramadan in Oman and it is greatly appreciated for all of us working this summer! This celebration, known as “Renaissance Day“, gives thanks to the day Sultan Qaboos bin Said began his rule in 1970, transforming the country into the modern, advanced nation that it is today! Congratulations to all Omanis!!!

    Spinach Mushroom Rice Bake Oman Style #492958 by Dienia B. which btw is not in the cookbook. It doesn't seem authentic though.

    Interestingly a spinach recipe again...

    It's acceptably close. It calls for ajwain but Dee put in thyme with ajwain as a sub. *I* would like to see more recipes using this spice since i have some!


    Oh right I noticed that. It's a spice of India, imagine that....

    they seem to have alot of indian influence in their recipes at least the ones that i found

    Yes they do. I was referring to it earlier in the thread that's why this message. There has been a lot of intermarriages by Omani males with Indian females in the past.
