Information About Ethiopia



Information on Ethiopia – Holidays

In Ethiopia holidays are occasions that are celebrated with gusto. There are a total of 14 public holidays that are celebrated. The Ethiopian calendar follows the Julian calendar system that was introduced into the country from ancient Alexandria. And that is why common Christian holidays like Christmas and Easter are celebrated on different dates than the Gregorian calendar that most of the world uses.
This also means that the country is on average 7 to 8 years behind the Gregorian calendar. Ethiopia entered the new millennium 8 years after the rest of the world.

Coming back to the main Ethiopian holidays, they are:

January 7th – Ethiopian Christmas (Genna)
January 19th (20th on Leap Years), Epiphany (Timket)
March 2nd, Victory at Adwa Day
April 13th, Ethiopian Good Friday (Siklet)
April 15th, Ethiopian Easter (Fasika)
May 1st International Labor Day
May 5th, Patriots’ Victory Day
May 28th, Overthrow of the Dergue (National Day)
August 19th, Eid Al Fitir
September 11th, Ethiopian New Year
September 27th, Meskel (Discovery of the True Cross)
October 27th, Eid Al Adha

  2. Good list of hotels. A tip to booking hotels would be to book via booking websites, this could be more prompt. Check this site out http://www.easyethiopiatravel.com/lalibela-hotels.shtml
