Oromo Celebrates Irreechaa for 6409 years

(A4O) For millions of Oromo in Oromia, October 4 was unique.

Wearing colorful dresses, they wore a big smile while taking a break from learning about their thanksgiving day, Irreechaa.

Irreechaa festival is certainly unique for new generation, but more importantly, it gives them a real understanding and appreciation of the Oromo culture.

This year, Oromo celebrates Irreechaa for 6409 years with unshakable determination and  resistance.
