At first, at such times each year, people in the western part of Saudi Arabia used to celebrate the month of Sha’baan; it is an annual habit that should be done by people in the western part of Saudi Arabia, the definition of shabana is people are meeting each others before entering the holy month of Ramadan to say bye to the days of Iftar and prepare for fasting. Moreover, we are now in New York and most of my friends here from the western part, so we will not meet our friends and family to having the shabana and enjoy before Ramadan, so we had a shabana on Saturday at the park in New Jersy. Our Saudi Club in NYIT invited all saudi’s students to enjoy and have fun with others. We had a barbeque party and some games for children and adults such as, coloring kids faces, playing soccer games and volleyball.
