The Ethiopian Christmas celebration, falling on January 7 (or 8 during Gregorian leap year), is not as decorated as Mesqel or Timkat but still very significant. If in Lalibela around this time, the sight of priests, singing on the cliffs around Bet Giorgis is a one that will be embedded in any memory of Ethiopia. Although, there is no legend attached to its practice, Christmas brings the traditional game of field hockey (genna). In the past, everyone played the game together, as the one time when there was no class difference between masters and servants.
