We wish every-one a very happy Amazigh (Berber) new year.

On 13 January 2018, the Amazigh New Year took place. Amazigh people celebrate the new year 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!?

Calendar

The Amazigh calendar is based on seasons and agriculture. It started when the Amazigh king Chiochink defeated the Roman emperor/Egyptian pharaoh Ramses III of Egypt.

It is interesting to realize that the Amazigh people live with 3 different calendars (although the Gregorian and Islamitic calendars are being used in daily life), 3 different types of writing (Tamazight, Arabic, and Latins signs), and various languages and dialects.

How to wish ‘Happy Amazigh (Berber) New Year’ in Tamazight

If you want to wish someone a ‘Happy Newyear’ in Tamazight (the Amazigh/ Berber language) you say: ‘Asogas amayno’

Hassan (being an Amazigh himself) can tell you all about the Amazigh people, their culture, and their way of living on your trip.

But for now; Happy New Year, Asogas amayno
