Sham El-Nassim

I can’t believe that i didn’t write anything about Sham El-Nassim in my Egyptian Chronicles last year May be I was busy or something

Anyway this week we got many many important Events in Egypt that we take day off started with the Eastern ,Today is Sham El-Nassim and Tomorrow is the Liberation of Sinai day {May God make all our days feasts and happiness more and more in Egypt }

Today is the Sham El-Nassim ,the most genuine and oldest feast in Egypt


Sham El-Nassim

Sham El-Nassim means in Arabic Smelling the breeze

It is the Egyptian celebration for Spring Season

Despite the fact that sometimes Spring is not that nice and cheerful in Egypt as we have the annual Sand storm A.K.A El-Khamseen {talk about it later when it comes} yet no one can deny that Spring is wonderful in Egypt especially in the country side parts where the green colour begins to blossom every where and the Nile powers and gifts begin to appear "despite it is still early on the flood as far as i know"

From here came the importance of this day to the ancient Egyptian that he decided to celebrate it annually and make it the first day in the ancient Egyptian if i am not mistaken and my Egyptology information are still good "i am mad about Egyptology , when i was a kid i dreamt to be like Indiana Jones šŸ™‚ "

Since I don’t know when in Ancient History , the Egyptians on that day go out with their families on picnics to the country side or gardens in other modern word "the outing day "

This is as i said before was 100% Egyptian , it is not Islamic ,it is not Arabic, it is Christian , it is Original Egyptian day in fact some doesn’t know but this day was taken by the Persians who invaded Egypt before the coming of Alexander the great to Egypt , they took it to their culture and changed to what is known as the Nairoz { different than the Jewish Nairoz despite the Egyptian roots in this one too }

I will go now ,this enough for this year Sham El-Nassim , next year Inshallah I will talk about the food
