Egyptian Harvest Festival

The ancient Egyptians were always ready to party and celebrate. In fact almost all the days in the year they seemed to be celebrating something or a god.

Egyptian Harvest Festival

The spring harvest festival of Egypt was celebrated to honor Min, the Egyptian God of Vegetation and Fertility.

The highlights of the festival included a grand parade with Pharaoh, their ruler, as the center of attraction and a gala feast, along with music, dance and sports.

When the Egyptian farmers completed harvesting their corn, they used to cry and pretend to be a grief-stricken. This was done to mislead the spirits of which they believed lived in the corn.

The farmers had the fear that the spirits might become angry when they cut down the corn on which the spirits used to live.

Wishing all readers Happy Thanksgiving 2017 !!!
