It's Melkam Yelidet Beaal (New Year) in Ethiopia! They're still on the Julian calendar (not on our souped-up, more glamorous Gregorian one), so today they hit the big 2-0-0-0! How do you say "Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1999" in Amharic?
Of course we can't forget: Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year! It's now the big 5-7-6-8, too.
