Enthronement Day Morocco (Aid Al Arch)

To celebrate and remember the day that His Majesty King Mohammed VI, Amir Al Mouminine, was enthroned in 1999, the people of Morocco, a country in north west of Africa, sets aside this day. This happens to fall during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan so eating and drinking during the day are not permitted. During the evening however people will get together and socialize as well as celebrate the King, even having fireworks for the event. One of the biggest days off during the year it is eagerly looked forward to.

Happy Enthronement Day Morocco!
