It is one of the joyful social traditions that occur in the middle of the holy month of Ramadan to draw joy on children’s faces, reward them and encourage them to fast. It also achieves and enhances social communication and instills it in them.
“Qarnaqasho” is celebrated in several states of the Sultanate and is the prevailing name in most of them. In contrast, in some states, it is called “Qarqe’an,” which is the common name in some countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council.
The children, dressed in traditional Omani clothes, go out in organized groups, chanting popular phrases, to visit the homes where adults wait for them to receive sweets and gifts.
Children from various segments of society participate in the “Qaranqasho”, and it is considered one of the traditions inherited from ancient times.
