# 10 Sleeping During the Day/ Awake All Night

sleepingNope, Saudis are not vampires…but it seems like they have the same life style minus the blood sucking. Due to the hot weather in Saudi Arabia; people prefer to go out at night where is much cooler and start their “day” at 9 pm. For people who eat lunch between 4 pm to 6 pm, then Saudi dinner must be at least at midnight; therefore Saudis will stay after dinner Chit-chatting, playing cards until they digest their food, then they will go to sleep.
But you may ask, “What about those Saudis who work during the day?”   Well, after work they will come back and take a long nap until the night, then be awake all night.  It seems like some Saudis like to live their lives backwards.
So if you decide to go out  in the afternoon, don’t think that people have evacuated the country, just pass by neighborhoods and listen to Saudis snoring. Go out at midnight to shopping malls or pass by the beach, and you will think that is just 7 pm where people are active and driving around the city. So when you ask a Saudi when are you heading to bed?  The answer will be when the sun comes up.

  2. Sir, I’ve read your article. And I think while it holds some truth, this truth is connected to two main seasons or periods; the hot summers and Ramadan, and only in some major cities. The country is more than those cities.
    I believe you’ve not been objective. Not only you showed all the Saudi’s as lazy, money spending, couch potatoes, and worse connected their image to drakulas, you’ve also made them look like an unproductive society! And that ,sir, is unfair!

    • Hello Maysoon,
      Al-salam alykoum. Thank you for your insight & opinions.
      I am a proud Saudi whose main purpose is to entertain with this blog…not to offend. Please do not take this blog as disrespect of our culture. .As I said in my “About” page section, this blog is for humorous purposes only based on personal experience and doesn’t reflect all of Saudi society, just look at it in true “Tash ma Tash” fashion.
      Thanks for reading…
      Peace and Ramadan mubarak.

  3. Well hello back to you sir.
    Wa-alykum Al-salm. Please excuse me for it was my mistake for going to the begining and check a little further about the blog owner. So I humbly apologize.
