#QTip: Why we fire a cannon during Ramadan

First of all, let us just say that the cannons have blanks in them, they're not real shells. 

Second of all, it's Ramadan! The cannon has become one of the Ramadan symbols! The reason why the canon is fired is because it was an easy way to let people know that it's time to break your fast. This was before alarms, megaphones, smartphones and people snapchatting "EAT ALL THE FOODS!".

Now it's become a tradition :) If you're interested, you can see the canon being fired on the corniche. It's an experience we all enjoyed as children.
