In Ethiopia, they use the original calendar which is much different from the Gregorian calendar. Therefore I developed calendar software which it can see both the Gregorian calendar and the Ethiopian calendar in one glance.
Specification of the Ethiopian calendar

- A year is 13 months.
- The month from 1st to 12th have 30 days.
- The 13th month has 5 or 6(leap year) days.
