As Ramadan winds down Egypt is still in turmoil. Over the past few weeks festive iftars, shared sohours and the twinkling lights of fawanees were often pushed aside by terrible traffic jams, marches and reports of injuries and deaths. The introspection and serenity that the holy month normally invokes was hard to find this year.

But as the feast approaches certain rituals are still in place. Parents are taking their children out to peruse the large variety of shirts, pants and dresses for sale on shops and stalls alike. Come Thursday morning children across the country will go out to show their friends their traditional Eid gift of new clothes.
