Melkam Addis Amet¡ Happy ethiopian new year¡ 2007¡

Enkutatash” is the word for the Ethiopian new year in Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia, as we call it “Ri’se Awde Amet” in Ge’ez, the term preferred by the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church. This occurs on 11 September in the Gregorian calendar, except for leap years, when it occurs on September 12.

In Ethiopian we are in 2007.
