Ethiopia has many celebrations throughout the year and all over the country.
Every one of the 54,000 parish Churches and the 800 monasteries of the Orthodox Tewahido Church have at least one minor monthly and one major annual festival.
These may share origins with Christian, Muslim and tribal festivals elsewhere in the world, but have unique indigenous characteristics in Ethiopia.
Meskel Festival means The Finding of the True Cross is celebrated on the 26th September at an open amphitheatre (Meskel Square) in Addis Ababa with a huge bonfire and priests in splendid ceremonial attire
