Ethiopian Calendar is, as the name clearly states, a software tool in the form of an Ethiopian calendar. This enables you to keep in touch with your roots, no matter where you might be in this world.
The interface of the program is easy to use and a bit outdated. On the main screen the entire current month is displayed, next to a clock that shows the exact time in Ethiopia. In addition to that, a small button that enables you to toggle between the Gregorian and Ethiopian calendar is available.
Also known as the Ge’ez calendar, the Ethiopian system is based on the Alexandrian one, only it adds a leap day every four years without exception. The year starts on the 29th or 30th of August, in the Gregorian calendar. Furthermore, there is a gap of seven to eight years between the two systems, as each culture calculates the date of the annunciation of Jesus differently.
As installation is not required, you can drop this file to any folder on your computer or even to portable storage units, such as USB flash drives. This means that you can run the Ethiopian Calendar on any computer that you have access to. Moreover, the Windows registry does not get updated with new keys, and the tool does not add new entries to the Start menu.
The program can provide you with a list of the most important holidays marked in the Ethiopian calendar.
You can export the system for one, two or six months in advance to an HTML file.
To sum up, Ethiopian Calendar is a software utility that can help you keep in touch with your roots. Moreover, the fact that you can toggle between the Gregorian and Ethiopian systems and the fact that it is portable, make the program more efficient.
