How is ramadan in other countries?

Thank you for your repplies.

I see that there is some benefits living in a country where the society is build for ramadan if you're working or studying. As for the dishes and desserts, I remember to have tasted some of them, I never knew that the one with grape leaves and the other dishes i already knew are traditional ramadan dishes. We also break the fast with dates here. I'm not a huge fan of dates however unless they're chocolate covered, so to make me eat dates, my mother started to make something healthy candy-like b@lls made withdates and spices.

Now that you mention it, I remember that some people do Itikaf here too. I must admit I never tried it myself though, I'm not good at being around a lot of people for a very long time. I think it's quite impressing that some people can stay there for 10 days in a row.

As for the time of breaking the fast. I have noticed that Iftar and Suhur doesn't seem to match with the sky ouside, but when I've asked questions all I've gotten is that it's just how it is. I'm glad i'm not the only one who finds it odd, I have wondered if there's something technical behind but apparently there isn't. It raise a question though about why the jurists wants to tamper with the fasting times. People are all about opening and breaking the fast at the exact prescribed time, but this means it's not opened or broken at the prescribed time at all.

What is the interrest in altering the fasting/eating time? What does the jurists get out of it? Fasting is for Allah's sake so when the fast is tampered with..then for who's sake is it?
