After sunset they are allowed to do so. All the people must fast except women who are expecting or who have a baby, sick people, religious travellers and fighters.
During the three days of Orozo ait, believers usually visit the places where the dead members of their family or closest family friends rest. Also people meet their friends. Every body must act peacefully towards their friends and enemies. Small children on Orozo Ait could also be called the holliday of ancestors.
