In Antalya, before tha Ramadan and Kurban (sacrifice) holidays, they would prepare baklavas, puff pastries, and special holiday dishes. They would serve coffee, candies, and pastries to guests. If there were an engaged couple in the family, they would exchange presents. On the Kurban Holiday, the boy's family would send a male sheep, elaborately decorated with gold bracelets on the horns and other colorful yarn. The girl's family would return with a tray of baklava, and other presents. On the Kandils (a special day in the Arabic Lunar calendar) they would prepare pisi, on the tenth of Muharrem ( the first month in the lunar calendar), they would give their neighbours Noah's pudding. On Kadir Evening (the 27th of Ramadan), some would invite their family for a meal, some guests would bring dishes to this meal. They would worship altogether.
In Antalya there is a belief related to Mirac night. According to the information given by Semsi Postacilar, it is necessary to eat pumpkin and distribute it to neighbours. When the Prophet Muhammed ascended to heaven there was no food except pumpkin in his home. Since he ate the pumpkin and ascended, people eat pumpkin. Some prepare pumpkin dessert and give it to their neighbours. It is a good deed.
