I celebrated an amazing Ethiopian Easter this weekend in Addis Ababa. I attended the midnight church services on Saturday night which lasts for over 3 hours. Hundreds of people stand, sit and sleep in and around the church and listen to the prayers and songs wearing all white - it’s the first time I slept at a church service. After that the family gathers in the house and eats doro wat (chicken stew) early in the morning around 5 am to break the fasting season and enjoys delicious Ethiopian coffee. Easter Sunday continues with eating meat all day, because durning the lent season a religious person in Ethiopia only eats vegetarian food. The Easter celebration will continue throughout this week. Everyone wears their best traditional Ethiopian outfit. Happy Fasika!
