Ancient Egyptian Epagomenal Festival

Originally published July 15, 2009 | The Scribe Blog

So I missed joining in on the fun, being a day late and a dollar short with this event. However, it is an annual event, so it's something to keep in mind for next year.

The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum will be hosting its annual Egyptian Epagomenal Festival on Saturday, July 18 and Sunday, July 19. In ancient Egyptian mythology, the calendar included 360 days plus five additional epagomenal days. These epagomenal days were days "out of time" when the goddesses Isis and Nephthys, and the gods Osiris, Seth and Horus were born. The Egyptians celebrated the birthdays of these gods with a festival each year. Our version of this festival will include a variety of special lectures, tomb tours, workshops and children’s activities held throughout Rosicrucian Park.
