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 πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ή, 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 πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ή is the only country in the world with 13 months and their New Year starts in September which implies that they are 7Β½ years behind Nigeria. This means they are two months into 2014 while we are in 2021

Ethiopia πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ή 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 πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ή .

Interestingly, Ethiopia πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ή 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.
