Good to know This is how you celebrate Christmas in Eritrea
Every year, millions of Orthodox Christians around the world celebrate Christmas on 6 and 7 January — two weeks after most people in the West have already feasted on countless Christmas treats, listened to their favourite Christmas playlists on repeat and started into the new year with all kinds of resolutions. The reason for this is different calendars.
Embaba and Selemawit tell us about how they celebrate Christmas back at home. Here’s a small peek: On Christmas Eve, everyone goes to church dressed in white and eats traditional dishes, which are shared with everyone while standing together in the centre.
Ga’at is a savoury dish made from roasted barley or millet flour that is served in the shape of a volcano. The centre contains melted butter enriched with spices. To counteract the spiciness of the spice mix, the volcano is encircled from the outside with yoghurt.
Just as it is the case in other religious communities and events, this time of the year is all about spending time with your loved ones while eating delicious foods and drinks.
