It's the sweetest start to the advent of the holy month of Ramadan. The 'Hag Al Laila' celebration is a time-honoured Emirati tradition where children go from house to house cheerfully calling out 'Atoona Hag Al Laila' meaning 'For this night, give us sweets.'
Setting the tone for the holy month, it embodies the spirit of giving and tolerance that has long been ingrained in the local culture. Local families always buy a wide collection of sweets, nuts, toys, and gifts to make children happy on this special night.
Global Village offers families a wide selection of shopping goods with a focus on adornment and gifting so that people can be ready when there is a knock on the door.
It's only natural that candy is the main attraction and at the park, you'll find candy from all over the world so kids and adults can have a wonderful time making picking their favourite.
Present your candy and chocolates in one of the many packaging options available, including boxes made of palm fronds and colourful novelty bags to hold candy.
You will find some wonderful traditional Emirati dresses for this happy occasion at Al Sanaa and Khalifa Foundation pavilions where you'll be truly spoilt for choice. There is also a range of gifts available that include bags, exquisitely crafted incense sets, crockery, and bric-a-brac, all of which make perfect presents.
The tradition not only ushers in the Ramadan mood but is also an occasion for people to learn more about the observation of Ramadan and the elements of introspection, prayer, reflection,family and community that are intrinsic to the month.
So visit Global Village to enjoy some exclusive shopping after the candy has been collected from many parts of the world.
