TIMKET

 

Timket is Ethiopia's most celebrated festival. It falls on January 19th and is easier for visitors to witness and enjoy.

The Holy Tabot, the replica of the Ark of the Covenant, is removed from each Orthodox church around the country the day before the celebration and taken to a central area where the ceremony will take place.

The following morning, the church officials assemble around the Tabot and sprinkle holy water over all the faithful present and receive the renewals of their vows. After this is done, the congregation follows the bishop, elders and clergy's as the Tabot is carried back to the church from where it came. There are many traditional dances by various groups who are accompanying the Holy Tabot.
