How many months are there in an Ethiopian calendar?

  • 13 correct

    Like a few other countries in the world, Ethiopia has its own official calendar. The Ethiopian calendar and the Egyptian Coptic calendar are similar, both having 13 months. Of those months, 12 have 30 days. There is a month with only 5 days called Pagume, meaning "forgotten days" in Greek, at the end of the year. The last month increases to 6 days in a leap year. According to the Ethiopian calendar, the year is 2013. A new year starts on this calendar on the 11th of September. The Ethiopian calendar lags behind the Gregorian calendar by seven to eight years because it uses an alternate calculation of the date of the birth of Jesus. Source: TheiopianCalendar.net
