Ethiopia is thought to be the resting place of the remains of Christ, as well as a multitude of scripture and even is fabled to hold the Arc of the Covenant.
What many people don’t know, is instead of a weirdly spaced out calendar of 12 months wtb random days, it appears the Ethiopian calendar is lunar based, with 28 day months giving 13 months to the Lunar year.
Ethiopia is 7-8 years behind the Gregoria calendar.
It is quite an unknown that the whole world, except Ethiopia, has adopted the Gregorian calendar, a calendar constituting 365 days in a year and 366 days in a leap year. On the other hand, Ethiopia has accepted the Coptic Calendar, which is quite different from the Gregorian calendar.

The Coptic Calendar has 13 months of which 12 months comprise of 30 days each, and a 13th month at the end of the year called the intercalary month usually has 5 days and 6 days in a leap year. Moreover, the Gregorian and Coptic Calendars are not the only calendars. There are 5 other types of calendars namely: the Chinese Calendar, the Hebrew Calendar, Balinese Pawukon, the Islamic Calendar and the Persian Calendar.
Coming back to the point, because of the adaptation of the Coptic Calendar, the country of Ethiopia celebrates New Year on September 11th! This is because the Ethiopian Calendar, as stated above, follows the Coptic Calendar which was fixed to the Julian Calendar in 25 BC by Emperor Augustus of Rome with a start date of 29 August, thus establishing the New Year on this day.
Here, September 11th is in accordance with the Gregorian Calendar; in other words, it is September 11th for the world except Ethiopia, where it is August 29, the New year.
The relationship between the Ethiopian and the Gregorian calendars varies whenever the Gregorian calendar misses a leap year. The difference in year numbering is because of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church disagreeing with the Roman Catholic Church about when Christ was born.
The calculation of time is also dissimilar in Ethiopia as hours are counted from dawn. So the next time, while on September 11th you are engaged in your routine schedule, Ethiopia will be celebrating New Year!
Think about that. It’s 2010.

Over the past 100 years, 90% of Ethiopia's forests have been lost to ever encroaching agriculture and deforestation. Yet in small patches, surrounding churches and monasteries, forest and their preservation form an integral part of Christian devotion. See the full story on our website (link in bio).

Photo: A young trainee priest stands beside a large tree growing in the forest that surrounds Robit Bahita church. Forest land surrounding churches have become islands of biodiversity in seas of agriculture, the last remnants of a once-expansive native cover. Conservation is a key tenet of the Tewahdo Ethiopian Orthodox which has protected them until now when these forests are threatened like never before as agriculture expands to cope with the country's booming population which is due to double over the next 30 years. South Gonder, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, 2018.

We have seen the great fighting between the Romans and the Ethiopians.

HAPPY ETHIOPIAN EASTER 🇪🇹PROUD OF MY HERITAGE ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ Many Orthodox churches base their dates on the Julian calender, which often differs from the Gregorian calender that is used by many Western countries. Therefore the Orthodox period often occurs later than the Easter period that falls around the time of the March Equinox.
