Public Defender Wishes Happy New Year to Assyrians
On April 1 Assyrians celebrate a New Year, Akitu- Kha b' Nisan. On 1 April 2016, the year of 6766 has come according to their calendar.
This holiday originates from the traditions of Mesopotamia and is related to two myths - the story of creation of the universe and the love story of fertility goddess Ishtar and shepherd Tammuz. Assyrians celebrate the arrival of spring, revival of nature and renewal of life on this day; they gather together, dance and sing national songs.
The Public Defender wishes happy, peaceful and prosperous year to the Assyrian community of Georgia.
