Public holidays in Ethiopia

I enjoyed hearing from people who liked the Current Ethiopian time page. I thought it would be a good complement to have another page with a list of Ethiopian holidays, and most importantly, the upcoming holiday. You can see it live on

The following holidays are listed,

ገና / Christmas
ጥምቀት / Epiphany
አድዋ ድል ቀን / Adwa
ስቅለት / Good Friday
ፋሲካ / Easter
የላብ አደሮች ቀን / Labour Day
የአርበኞች ቀን / Patriots’ Day
ደርግ የወደቀበት ቀን / National Day
ረመዳን / End Al Fitre
አረፋ / Eid Al Adaha
እንቁጣጣሽ / New Year
መስቀል / Discovery of The True Cross
መውሊድ / Birthday of the Prophet Mohammed

  1. Thank you for your contribution and it is a great accomplishment. On the Ethiopian calendar, day of the weeks are okay except that one which got my attention. Wednesday suppose to be written as “ረቡዕ“ not as written. You have option on Saturday, you can write as “ቅዳሜ or ”ሰንበት“. Thank you for your great job and keep up.

  3. ለሚመለከተው ሁሉ:

    ከተጠቃሚዎች አንዱ።

    እባካችሁ ወደ apps ቀይሩት በጣም በጣም ጥሩ አርጋችሁ ነው የሰራችሀት ትክክለኛ ሰአት እና ደቂቃ ነው እንዴት ጥሩ ነገር ነው መሰላቹ በተለይ ከኢትዮጵያ ወተን ትንሽ ብዙ በውጭሃገር ለቆየን እንደእኔ ላሉ በጣም ጠቃሚ ነው።
    እግዚአብሔር ይባርካቹሁ።

    ከሰላምታ ጋር።
