Tomorrow, It’s the first day of Ramadan, and tonight you’ll wake up to the sound of your mother’s voice yelling “Wake up, it’s time for suhoor!” You stumble out of bed, half-asleep, and grab the same stale dates and water you’ve been consuming for years. Yep, it’s Ramadan’s first day déjà vu all over again. If you think you won’t do these things on day one, you’re wrong.
1- Mahshi will be your main dish.
Egyptians are creative when it comes to Iftar during Ramadan, but on the first day here comes a creative block storm and we all find ourselves eating Mahshi, and maybe for the next 3 days.
2- Watching Ramez Galal’s show during Iftar.
Whether you love him or not، although there are many shows shown during Iftar, your father will insist to watch Ramez Galal’s show، and everyone starts to stir up controversy if the prank is real or not.
3-Arguing about “Who put the licorice juice in the Pepsi bottle”.
Yeah, yeah, we all know that licorice has many benefits. But, putting licorice juice in the Pepsi bottle, and serve it with the rest of the drinks، that’s something the devil only does. You take one sip and then you have trust issues e for the rest of your life.
4- Going after the last piece of kunafa even if you’re on a diet.
This’s like trying to resist the gravitational pull of a black hole. It’s a force too powerful to resist, and before you know it, you’re waist-deep in syrupy deliciousness. Sure, you might regret it later, but for that brief moment of bliss, nothing else matters. So go ahead, take that last piece of kunafa, and savor it like it’s the only dessert left on earth!
5- Drinking like a camel in last minutes before the Fajr Prayer.
This’s not only won’t helping at all, but it’s also a funny sight to behold. You can imagine a group of people chugging down water like there’s no tomorrow, trying to hydrate for the day ahead. It’s like trying to fill up a gas tank before the car runs out of fuel, except in this case, the fuel is water and the car is your body. So drink as much as your body needs, and may your fast be as smooth as your last gulp of water!
