An example of a paragraph

Achoura is one of the most important celebrations in which Muslims do various activities. It is celebrated on Muharram 10th every year. On this occasion, families meet together for a special meal of dried fruit and couscous with guedid. They also eat cakes and drink milk or juice. More importantly, they offer Zakat to poor people. Moreover, families and friends meet each other on the big day to play their drums while singing and dancing. In addition, Achoura is an opportunity for children to play with toys that their parents bought for them, such as dolls, plastic guns, cars and masks. Furthermore, children spray each other with water on the day of Zem Zem. In the evening they light bonfires as well as fireworks and start singing and dancing around the fire late into the night. In brief, Achoura is a mixture of religious, cultural and traditional practices.
