Sidewalks paved with gold

Melon juice is another traditional fast-breaker, so as soon as Ramadhan started, all these piles of luminous yellow melons appeared around the city as if by magic. They're very festive. They must embody the season for people, the way poinsettias represent Christmas back in the States. But melons are delicious and don't pose a danger to pets, so I'm with Islam on this one.
