They called it “Wat Rabbit alienated” i “the opening day of the beautiful year.” It was celebrated with the sunrise on September 11th “blueberries, “the fourth month of the flood season, where Their Sunnah was linked to the flood.
The ancient Egyptians noticed that the flood is an annual phenomenon repeated regularly and that the Yemeni poetry star appears on the horizon with the sunrise that day. They then thought that the flood was only tears of the idol Isis that kept crying On her husband Osiris after his brother six killed him.
The Sunnah of ancient Egyptians was as it is now, twelve months. And in every month: thirty days. But, the remaining five days were forgotten, and forget it even from their history, and New Year’s Eve lasted throughout those days the five days, as they were spending it in celebrations and joys outside the houses. The festivities were starting from the temple where they went to the top cabin above the temple, carrying bread, cakes, pancakes, and wine, and then going out to the fields and on the Nile Beach enjoying With planting, roses, winds, and beautiful calm atmosphere, leaving behind the world’s troubles and worries that have shed them all year long, and their food on New Year’s Day included ducks, geese, and fish.
Their drinks were fresh wine, as the grape age celebrations were in accordance with New Year’s holidays, and they were making sure to exchange round water bottles, which symbolized water as a symbol of life, and those bottles were represented in the image of the ?? note ?? of the sky. They thought there was a permanent link between water and life and the beginning of the new year, and one of the most beautiful habits in their holidays – especially on New Year’s Day, that the fighters raced towards each other, disputing their hearts hostility and hatred. In those five days – forgotten – their differences, grudges, and disputes that may last all year!

Then they baked the type dedicated to visiting graves was formed in the form of a mascot of six “Isis knots, “which is one of the mascots that open the doors of paradise, and so every Eid of ancient Egyptians had a link to the hereafter… a very happy new year.
