Why Ethiopian Clocks are upside-down.
What time does your morning start and what calendar year is your country?
Do you know that:
In Ethiopia 🇪🇹, clocks are upside down with our 6:00 at their 12:00. The day starts at 7am instead of 12am and ends at 6:59am.
Ethiopia 🇪🇹 is the only country in the world with 13 months and their New Year starts in September which implies that they are 7½ years behind Nigeria. This means they are two months into 2014 while we are in 2021
Ethiopia 🇪🇹 is also the only African country with its own alphabets. It has the world’s oldest living alphabets – Ethiopic – and probably one of the longest with its 345 letters. In addition, the oldest fossil skeleton of a human was discovered in Ethiopia 🇪🇹 .
Interestingly, Ethiopia 🇪🇹 is one of the only TWO nations in the world never to have been occupied. This is despite the Italians twice trying and failing to take the country.
