1600 year old celebration going strong. Meskel Festival tonight sure was something to behold. Ethiopias history and cultures never cease to amaze. 🔥💪🏽
Bugün Addis Ababa'da güzel bir gezinti yaptık. Birazı hikayede ama en özeli buydu. Özel bir kutlama 🎉 Copy paste yapıyorum vaktim dar meraklısı araştırır. Sevgiler 🙏🏼 Meskel celebration is one of the major Ethiopian Orthodox festivals is celebrated for two days beginning September 26th. Legend has it that in the year 326, Queen Helena (Empress Helen) the Mother of Constantine the Great, discovered the cross upon which Christ was crucified. Unable to find the Holy Sepulchre, she prayed for help and was directed by the smoke from a burning fire as to where the cross was buried. After unearthing the Holy Cross, Queen Helena lit torches heralding her success... #meskelcelebration #meskel #ethiopia #ethiopianculture #addisababa #christianity #africa #africancultures #musicianslife #musicianlife

Neighborhood street life. The road was closed, a #bonfire built, and music videos were projected onto a screen. #Meskal, #ethiopia, #streetlife, #addisababa
