If the 1st of the month is happy the whole month will be happy

Yesterday was the 1st of the month in the Ethiopian calendar. Every school day the kindergarten teachers have a coffee ceremony and anyone who wants to come along is invited. Usually there is a  gathering of 12-15 teachers, cleaners and other staff. On the first of the month popcorn was served (usually reserved for honoured guests) and boiled corn as well. Delicious. Everyone was smiling and happy and then they explained. Coffee served on the 1st of the month is very important, if the mood is happy the whole month will be happy. A wonderful philosophy!
