In Turkmenistan, children go door-to-door for Ramadan singing and asking for a gift (like candy or coins). Here's a video of some kids in Turkmenistan going to a neighbor's house and singing a Turkmen Ramadan song to their neighbors….
There's a Crescent in the Sky

There's a crescent in the sky.
There's a bow with a red pike.
There's a share for us
at the Prophet's dining place.
Let there always be celebrations in your home.
Let a girl be born to those who give less.
Let a boy be born to those who give more.
Oh herons, herons,
Oh herons that fly away.
Oh village women,
Let your sons who are
in the military return home safely.
The crescent moon has traditionally been used to determine the beginning of Ramadan.
Thanks and Acknowledgements
