Melkam Addis Amet 2011

Voor al mijn Ethiopische vrienden en kennissen een gezond, gelukkig en vooral een vreedzaam  2011!

For all my Ethiopian friends : Melkam Addis (and a peaceful) Amet 2011!!

In Ethiopië wordt Meskaram First / Enkutatash ( Nieuwjaar) gevierd op 11 september.
Ethiopië gebruikt de Juliaanse kalender die het jaar verdeelt in twaalf maanden van dertig dagen en één maand van vijf of zes dagen voor een schrikkeljaar. Ook heeft de Ethiopische kalender een verschil van 7 of 8 jaar (van 11 september tot en met 31 december 7 jaar, en van 1 januari tot en met 11 september 8 jaar) met onze gregoriaanse kalender.
Het is een belangrijk familie- en sociaal evenement. De dag begint met een kerkdienst. Daarna wordt gegeten en gedronken. Meisjes in witte jurken delen bloemen uit terwijl ze nieuwjaarsliedjes zingen. Als tegengift ontvangen ze van familie en buren een muntje of een stukje brood.
