How to experience Omani culture during Eid days, just a note

In my advice about How to Experience Omani Culture During Eid Days I forgot to mention one little note... if your goal is to catch the traditional omani "al azwah" dances and music, and contests, if any, what day you do go may be of little consequence if there was a recent death in a given village...

Traditionally, rifle shows, and music, and dancing, are for happy occasions. Out of respect for a lost member of village society, these things are forgone for Eids sometimes....just so, if you went to a village famous for its traditions... and you saw nothing even it was the right day I told you to go on, you'll understand why;).
