Ethiopian Christmas in January

It’s Christmas in January –in Ethiopia! Ethiopia uses a different calendar system and thus observes Christmas on January 7th this year. ECDC held a luncheon, welcoming its partners and supporters to celebrate the occasion. Certainly, there was plenty of injera (flatbread) and wat (stew) for everyone, and traditional dancing to set the festive mood. Check out the pictures below!
