Holidays the Kemetic Way

You’ve seen them around my blog already.

Various festivals celebrated the only way I could, making do with what I had, in the only places I was able to.

When I celebrate various Kemetic festivals, namely those centering around Bast(-Mut), I can only truly do so in the confines of a hotel room.  I will set up my travel shrine and find food to-go from any nearby restaurant, plane snacks, or hotel diners, which I can then share with the Netjeru in shrine.

Sometimes I’ll put my icons out in front of a window to greet Ra.  Other times I will process the statue around the tiny room.  I always find a way to make do with what I have, and celebrate whichever way I can!

As the years go by, I’m participating more and more in the Moomas festivities, including a card exchange in which you see a few resting in my shrine.  I drew such a beautiful image that I sent out on custom-made cards, and I look forward to doing even more with these festivals someday!

Come the day I have my own house, I plan for large celebrations with cooked feasts and decorations galore.  But until then, I make do, and I enjoy the time I spend with my gods no matter what the circumstance.

Baking cakes for the birthdays?  Why not!  Singing loudly with sistra ringing?  Yes please!

The fact that everybody can celebrate the festivals their own way makes for such beautiful variety.

I embrace it.
