Fanoos Ramadan

This is the our new Fanoos - the traditional Egyptian lantern that signifies the holy muslim month of Ramadan. In the past the Fanoos was lit by candles but now it uses electricity - there are even plastic versions for children that use batteries.


P.S. the colors are much less vivid here on Flickr, does anyone know why?
