Merry Christmas, Ethiopia!

It's Christmas again! Ethiopia uses the Julian calendar and celebrates Christmas on January 7. Using the Julian calendar also means that this year is their millennium...the year 2000 which began in September! Remember our Y2K craziness? Somehow I doubt that the Ethiopian population was hoarding bottled water and canned food. But I digress....

Merry Christmas Ethiopia!

I pray that you know the True meaning of Christmas, no matter what day it's celebrated...the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
