Ethiopians celebrate the new year (2008)
While its only three months from the new year for most of us around the world, Ethiopia just welcomed in the new year. It’s now the year 2008 there and thousands are already gathered in the capital to celebrate the festivities.
The new year in Ethiopia is definitely one of the most important festivals for the citizens. Much more reason for the Capital Addis ababa to come alive as many are out buying gifts and presents for their loved ones and on the streets a cheerful mood engulfed the citizens.
