As stated in 7achy.com, Girgian is a traditional occasion that is celebrated in Kuwait and other Gulf countries on the 14th and 15th day of the month of Ramadan, where children will go from house to house knocking on doors asking for sweets.
I on the other had, a grown up, who did not have to go knocking on doors for treats, yet got a considerable amount of Gergaian this year 😉
To begin with, this year we had different presentation for treats to give to kids knocking on our door 😉 (check out last year’s here)
Its funny how some of the kids in the neighborhood have some sort of map where they know which house give out the “GOOD” Gergaian… Thankfully, our house one not to miss 😉
Also, my sister likes to make/stamp her own personalized Gergaian touch to give to family and friends. This year, she had her little Zayooni’s hand print on each pot filled with nuts, chocolates, sweets and more 😉
Those pictures were taken during the preparation part of it 😉
And thats our beautiful AlZain ❤ Happy with her Gergaian
We also got some more from family members…
From Shaha, Shaikha, Hamad, and Baby Fasooli ❤ Check out Shaikha’s (also known as Kaika) Gergaian! All pink and so girlie 😉
And little Shaha’s with her little jar of cardamom 😉 Cute!
Another Gergaian I got was from Dolce Antico in Hawalli, which I am planning to write a whole post about cuz I visited their store and snapped a lot of pictures for you to check out 😉 So stay tuned
Also, my friend, Luluscious – the one who sends me news from London to post about on the blogn – is in Kuwait on vacation and got me special London Chocolates – a semi Gergaian kinda thing 😉
The very kind Suad from KARKOOSHA sent me a bag of Gergaian also 😉
The presentation is fabulous and they included a mouse pad (which reflect their virtual – online exhibition), nuts, and yummies from Chocolate Bar ❤
A candle with nuts and chocolates 😉 LOVED the candle!
