Independence Days!
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!

    I had to attend many of these functions when I was a kid because of my dads job, and it was amazing to see the different celebrations that each country have...I can't remember what other country/ies that celebrate 3eed al joloos of their king!
    oh and I love Moroccons, I have a couple of close friends here that are from Morocco...I love their culture and e7im their food...and I can't wait to visit Morocco one day...everyone keeps telling me how beautiful it is :)

    Wild Mare: Making a group and going on a Moroccan advanture sounds like fun! The question is, "when will this happen and who wants to go?"
