Irreechaa celebrating the Dawn of Redemption

Ireechaa is one of the centuries-old thanksgiving celebrations in Ethiopia. Nature adorns itself with its trade mark color of green and sprinkles colors from the rainbow over that background during spring. Spring also marks the end of the gloomy days of winter and heralds the beginning of the era of beauty. The Oromo people come together to praise Waaqaa, the Almighty God, for renewing life and refreshing nature. Embellished in cultural attire and flowers, they ceremonially march to the Hora, water body, near them. Ireechaa marks the beginning of life anew, rise of hope, forgiveness, and redemption. Apart from being a cultural and spiritual ceremony, Irreechaa has a considerable potential to be one of Ethiopia’s tourist attractions. Although Irreechaa is celebrated across Oromia, Addis Ababa also started hosting a massive number of celebrators since last year at an artificial lake and landscape installed around Meskel Square. Ireechaa was celebrated this year on October 3, 2020 in Addis Ababa. EBR
