The Government of Kafur in Egypt

There are ransoming points, nevertheless, in all this overeating and sottishness. The Arabs didn't tope moodily in aloneness. They liked a jovial company around them, and plenty of blooms and sweet aromas on the board; they appareled very carefully, and aromatized their byssi with civet and besprent themselves with rosewater; while ambergris, burning in a thurible, diffused a delectable fragrance through the room. Nor was the feast accomplished without music, and the voices of singing-men and singing-women. A assaulting slave girl, with a form like the Oriental willow and a face like the full moon, sang soft sad Arabian lines to the backup of the lute, till the clients rolled over with crystal. And rarely was a banquet conceived perfect without the bearing of a wit such a wit as no longer subsists; no mere punster, though he dismissed, but a man of letters, well laid in with the literature of the Arabs, capable to finish a broken citation, and of fine appreciation in, his composings and drills. It was, so, the heyday of literary men. So intense was the cultism of the caliphs and viziers to poetry and song, that they'd decline nothing to the poet who delighted them. A beggar who gave an reply in a neatly-turned verse would have his jar fulfilled with gold; and a man of letters who made a good repartee was likely to have his mouth boned up with jewels, and his whole closet replenished. One poet left him a hundred complete becomes of robes of honor, 200 shirts, and 500 turbans.

But Kafur was much more an epicurean and a dabbler. Strong as a horse, but appease as a giant, his arduous work and unfailing good humor were phenomenal. He was no base statesman and committed much time and pains to the direction of public business, working frequently far into the night, and so throwing himself on his knees, crying, “Oh God, give no made thing power across me”, His judge, clemency, largess, and piety were renowned, and though he left immense wealthiness in gold and cherished stones, slaves and beasts, he used his monomanias in a broad and kindly spirit. He died in 968, and on his engrave at Damascus was written:

How comes it with thee, Kafur, entirely in the grave amid the rattling of the hail, who once didst delight in the din of combating hosts?

Men's feet now tread over thy head, where of old the lions of the arenaceous waste bowed before thee.

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.
