A1: No, not really.
2: the working hours are less. It is 6 hours a day instead of 8.
The last question (about the gifts and the streets)I’ll leave the answer in the end.
First thing Ramadan has specific or special atmosphere to it (but I guess that’s in all over the world).
There are some dishes that appeared in Ramadan like: لقيمات ، سمبوسة، فيمتو.
There is also some food sharing or what I called إفطار صائم . Some mosques will have that إفطار صائم it is mostly water and dates (but I don’t know if they have other food 🤷🏻♀️).
This thing vary not only from one place to another but from one family to another: eating breakfast or Iftar some families have to start with coffee and sweets, they go to pray Maghrib then come back to have the main course or the other dishes (so basically they have 2 iftars) other families but everything one time.
The point I am going to say now some people consider it negative:
It’s a TV related month. It’s like a season for the shows producers. (People say that’s wrong because it should be a worshiping month, not a month that we spend watching tv series) but to be honest with you it’s not only tv series, there is also religious shows,educational shows, even ads are more 🤣💔
The show خواطر for example was released in Ramadan.
Now about the streets that’s differs from one place to another. And about the gifting yes there are some occasions that has gifting , in the eastern region kids go around houses to get candy or money (at the middle of the month, day 15) . That occasion is called قرقيعان. In my region (I live in the central region) people has some debate about قرقيعان because they say it’s a shia’ thing and we ares sunna, and we shouldn’t celebrate it (I don’t know about their assumptions) in some of the little towns in my region we do the same (kids go around houses to get money or candy) but that will be the day before Eid (day 29) .then we will have gifts from our family members in Eid itself.
