We wish every-one a very happy Amazigh (Berber) new year.
On 13 January 2018 the Amazigh New Year took place. Amazigh celebrate this with a delicious meal and visits of family and friends.
According to the Amazigh calendar we currently live in the year 2968. Can you imagine!?
The Amazigh calendar is based on the seasons and the agriculture and started when the Amazigh king Chiochink defeated the Roman emperor/Egyption pharao Ramses III of Egypt.
It is interesting to realize that the Amazigh people live with 3 different calendars (although the Gegorian and Islamitic calender are being used in daily life), 3 different types of writing (Tamazight, Arabic and Latins signs) and various languages and dialects.
Hassan (being an Amazigh himself) can tell you all about the Amazigh, Amazigh culture and Amazigh life on your trip.
But for now; Happy New Year!
