Local residents are unhurried and reasonable people who are always glad to tell visitors about their culture. The ritual of drinking tea has particular importance for them. All most important questions here are discussed with a cup of fragrant mint tea or Moroccan coffee. You should also remember that age-old traditions and religious customs have great importance for local people. Strict following of the centuries-old traditions gives even greater fascination to the city. National holidays are always accompanied by solemn processions and folk ceremonies. Local people have great respect for tourists who are interested in their customs and show interest to their cultural traditions.

Smoking hookah is an important national ritual - for local residents this is one of the best ways to relax and think of the decision of an important issue. When the head of a family sits down to smoke a hookah, no one should distract him. As a rule, a hookah is set in a special room in which a family usually greets guests. It should be noted that locals always prepare very carefully when they expect guests. A refusal to drink a cup of coffee with the house’s owner can be considered as a dismissive attitude and a strong offense, so any invitation to make a visit to someone’s house should always be accepted with gratitude.
Moussem is a unique religious celebration. Almost any event can become the reason for this holiday - a good harvest, a wedding or other happy event. Each time the festival can take place in various sanctuaries. Local residents are distinguished by cheerfulness and positive attitude to the world. Taking into consideration the fact that they have to restrict themselves severely during various religious fasts and follow a lot of rituals, visitors may think such a positive attitude is a little strange. The fact is these ancient traditions are not considered by people as complex obligations. For them these rituals are more like an integral part of life - a solemn and a sublime one.
