Unique Ceremonies

Timket (Epiphany): Celebrated on the 19th of January, it involves a colorful procession of priests and followers singing and dancing. The priests carry Tabots (replicas of the Holy Ark of the Covenant) from their sanctuaries overnight. Timket is one of the most popular national holidays among Ethiopian Christians. The best venues to celebrate Timket are Gondar, Addis Ababa and Lalibela. Faskia (Easter): The fasting of fifty five days before feasting on Fasskia is the most popular prayer season among the majority of Ethiopians. The attractions of this festival are during Good Friday services and the lively midnight mass on the eve, which adds to the exuberance of the holiday. The best venues to celebrate Fasika are Addis Ababa and Lalibela. There are also several bull jumping and many other fascinating rituals, ceremonies and celebrations among various tribal groups of the Omo in southwest Ethiopia.
