Ancient Egypt Christmas

Good the ancient Egypt feted a feast-day or christmas on the twenty-fifth of July which was the begin of the Egyptian year. The feast was the festivity of the Christ in Egypt in the cult of Horus. The feast affected an copiousness of food and drinks and was called the Wag festival or fete. This fete was associated to the coming of the alluvions of the Nile river which begot food, grain, trees and all mode of vegetation, briefly: all of life was affirmed by the Nile. Before this time they had fasted for a few forty nights in memorial of the ending of the forty years of famine although Horus betrayed the wilderness and was disputed by "enticement" by Apep-Sut (The Papyrus paper of Hu-nefer)

Agreeing to astrological data the twenty-fifth of July started in the sign of Leo but ascribable the procession (of the equinoxes) by time the twenty-fifth was designed into the twenty-fifth of December; the vernol equinoctial point in the sign of pisces and thus acclaiming afresh age of enlightenment. The annula cycle of the inundation of the Nile waters concurs with what the Egyptians brought up to as "the House of 1000 Years"; the time in which Horus was set to reign the world afterward the conflict with Sut.

Hence the coming of Horus concurred with the battle with Sut and the anticipate of a new long time after Sut and his "evil" rule had finished in the lake of Osiris "the Lake of Fire" at Edfu.

Astrological data affirms that on pre-dynastic Egypt the easterly equinoctial point was in the sign of Leo (hence the birth of the christ was localized in the house of Leo), and so as the years came along the emanation changed when the equinox acceded the sign of the crab, and then in the sign of the celestial twins (Gemini), and then in the sign of the Taurus the Bull (coincident with the Cult of Amun) and so to Aries the force (on the late dynastic period) and eventually to Pisces which heralds the return of the flood and accordingly a new age starts. Notice that this consists the concept of Zep-tepi which mainly pertains to the concept of time-travell (i.e coming back in time) and the bring back to the aboriginal state - from when the Great water flood first started.

Horus was in reality born twice. At one time for the (New Year) on the twenty-fifth of July (Horus the Younger) and once again on the twenty-fifth of December (Horus the Elder).

When was Jesus thought to have been born? A few tell twenty-fifth of March, and some tell twenty-fifth of December. But according to the creed of James, Jesus was affected the equinox when he ascertained whilst consulting at the night sky and the perch of heaven abided still, that the coursing of the river had abided still and the children weren't drinking of the river.

Nowadays, Christians arrogate that Christmas is all around the bear of Jesus. Primitively it was to the infidels that Christmas was first celebrated. The festivity of Christmas was abided by in ancient Egypt for the Rebirth of Osiris (embodied as the new born King Horus).

You may have a tree in your home. Is this gentile? Yes! The Christmas tree is the Asert tree referred in the writings of King Unas, which as the Hebrews bumped the sapience of Egypt got the [burning bush] (Asher) referred in the Hebrew Bible. The (burning bush) (in the abandon) wasn't really on fire concording to the Hebrew Bible. The fire was merely a light ; the equal light which is referred by Unas for the Asert tree from which the god Wepwawet (the Opener of the Ways) came along in the desert by the mount of the Pole Star.

But completely this doesn't mean we should give up "Christmas Day"; that the ancestries of Christmas set out with the gentiles doesn't mean that Christians shouldn't celebrate the wintertime festivity of their godman.

Ludwig Borchardt

Ludwig Borchardt, German Egyptologist and architect. Borchardt was born on 1863 (October 5) in Berlin. He was part of the archeological sites at Abusir, Amarna and is most famed for his act at Abu Ghurab and the Temple of Niuserre. Borchardt acted with Henrich Schafer on the archeological site from 1898 to 1901 on the temple committed to Ra god.

Additional field that Borchardt acted at was the old settlement of Amarna, which was situated 150 kilometres(about 90 miles) in the south of Cairo Egypt. That's where, in 1912, he exposed the bust of Queen Nefertiti, wife of the Sun King Akhenaten. Borchardt dug the bust of Nefertiti out of the sand and so black it out of Egypt where it was so gone for Germany. The Berlin Museum of Antiquities attained the bust the centre of their collection. Armana was constructed between the early capitals of Memphis and Thebes, approximately ten kilometres south of present day Mallawi. It was constructed by the short term Pharaoh of Egypt Akhetaten who ruled from 1353 - 1333 BC.

The New York Times covered in 1929 that the Egyptians desired the bust of Queen Nefertiti came back to Egypt. The Times covered in 2007 that the Egyptians was calm attempting to get Germany to at least make them a loan the bust of Nefertiti, but the Germans told the bust was becoming nowhere.

Ludwig Borchardt has been credited with basing the German Archaeological Institute in Cairo in 1907 and attained many shares to the apprehension of ancient Egyptian architecture. He died on 1938 (August 12).
