- The commemoration of the Prophet Mohammed's birthday is one of the biggest events of the year and a public holiday. It usually occurs sometime in the Spring. The streets are lit with colored lights and the scent of food fills the festive air. Head to El-Hussein Square to see one of the country's largest and most colourful processions. It is a local tradition in Egypt to buy children a moulid candy doll for the occasion.
