Happy Amazigh New Year,
Asseggwas ighudan i imazighen marra wala kul medden yaden,

Amazigh New Year 2958 is today Jan 13

Imazighen known as Berbers have stated their calendar 950 BCE and have used it ever since.
Most farmers in North Africa, having forgotten the origins of this calender, still remember that January (yanayer) 13 is the start of the Year. celebrated as Haguza, yennayer and many other names.

Quel scoop ! Les marocains fêtent hagouza en achetant des fruits secs et en s'offranrt un bon diner à base de poulet beldi !!!

thanks Ssi Mohamed. yes Hagouza is great. i do not really know if people are still doing it or no. in the south east morocco it is still there n a lot of places but it is definitely going.
in Souss areas think it is there but it is rather called Taguella.
i have to ask Simlymorocan wha tshe thinks about all this Haguza business and why is it going.
Imazighen are picking lot of things back and doing great job is reviving them which is great.
@ mounir, thank you. sorry about being late in responding. thanks you for the wishes.
