Ethiopian Christmas celebration at ECDC

A few images from the lively annual Ethiopian Christmas party at the Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC) offices on S. Highland Street, just a block off Columbia Pike in Arlington, Virginia.

The Abyssinian Coptic Church, like the Orthodox Christian churches, celebrates Christmas at the end of the twelve-day nativity cycle.

A splendid time - along with plentiful injera and other locally-prepared Ethiopian (and Thai!) food - was had by all.

Thanks to Dr. Tsehaye Teferra and his staff for their gracious hospitality, provided to a wide range of Arlington's diverse citizens.
