Koriteh – Celebration of the End of Ramadan

Del wrote from The Gambia, “Lisa – today is also the Muslim celebration of Koriteh – after the Ramadan fast. So people here too are very happy.”

I read that kids go around to houses asking for “salibo” (sweets or money) just like the western Halloween.

Happy Koriteh!
