 Easter marks a very important interest and enthusiasm among the Christian community in Ethiopia being the last major religious festival. Believers of the Ethiopian Orthodox church await its arrival with great eager passing through a long lent period of 55 days where no animal product of meat, milk or egg shall not be consumed during this period. One week before Easter is called HeMamat a time to remember the suffering, beatings, wounds and pains of Jesus. In this week, people would not laugh, kiss, joke or make any fun but try to be on strict remembrance of those troubles of the Lord. A week after Easter is also a colorful festival called Dagme Tinsae, which marks the ascension of Jesus to heaven. This is also equally celebrated with the main Easter festival.
