No. I didn't hit my head and forget what the date is or the time of the year. It is the Ethiopian New Year and a holiday in our house. Jacob and M took green, yellow and red (Ethiopia's colors) to school today to share with their friends. I spoke to Jacob's teacher earlier this week and they will be making an art project in honor of Ethiopia and talking about the holiday during group time today. Tonight, we will be eating at a local Ethiopian restaurant and enjoying some great food. We are taking our friend, P, with us and letting her learn a little about the culture as well.
So to all of our family and friends from Ethiopia or touched forever by Ethiopia, happy new year! May 2002 be a great year for all of you. May it be full of happiness, health and prosperity.
