Last night I attended a reception dinner hosted by the Moroccan ambassador! Since I work for a multi-national firm I was invited to that event but I was confused! I thought that the reception dinner was to celebrate Morocco's independence day, but I was wrong! Morocco does have an independence day like any other nation but they don't celebrate it as much as they celebrated the event last night!
Without any further ado, the event last night was based on the day the current king sat on the throne! Apparently, Moroccans hold the day the King sat on the throne at a higher regard than that of Morocco's independence!
Don't you just love learning about other cultures? I know I do!
