Garangao is a traditional Qatari celebration that takes place on the 14th night of Ramadan. It is celebrated by children dressed in traditional clothing, including the Garangao dress. During Garangao, children go door-to-door singing songs and receiving treats from their neighbors. The sight of these children dressed in their finest attire is truly beautiful and a reminder of Qatar’s cultural heritage. Garangao is an important part of Qatar’s culture, as it brings people together to celebrate the joys of Ramadan
The dress usually consists of a long white thobe for boys and a colorful jalabiya for girls, both with intricate embroidery and embellishments. Other traditional accessories like head-dresses, scarfs and belts are also worn to complete the look.
