Fasika (Easter) is a very big holiday in Ethiopia, one considered even more important than Christmas! There will be celebrations all over Ethiopia throughout this weekend. Ethiopians are breaking their fast. Everyone dresses in traditional white clothes, spends time with their loved ones, goes to church and it is very common for families to sacrifice a lamb early on Sunday morning.
In Celebration of Easter (Fasika) in Ethiopia, the IAN Office in Ethiopia will be closed on Friday, April 22nd. Staff in Ethiopia will not be working over this holiday weekend. In addition, the Embassy, Courts and many other organizations will be closed on Friday, April 22nd. The IAN office in Denver will be closing at 12:30 MST.
We wish everyone a wonderful holiday weekend!
