Friday 23rd November is the Egyptian celebration Khoiak and Nehebkau on Thursday 29th November. The Egyptian Year was split into three seasons (divided into 4 months of 30 days), commencing with Akhet in early August, then Peret from late November to early April and Shomu from early April until mid July. Khoiak was a sombre celebration to complete the first season; later associated with the death of Asar (Osiris). However, it was followed closely by Nehebkau - marking the start of the next season Peret - and was seen as a kind of rebirth process.
Thursday 29th November is the Egyptian celebration Nehebkau, which literally meant 'he who unites the Kas'; the Ka being the body double which we might interpret as spirit or soul. See Ka image to left.
Nehebkau was depicted in the form of a snake with arms and legs and occasionally wings! He was yet another Deity associated with protection and magic.
This year, Thursday 29th November 2018 has numerological significance as a secondary 11:11:11 (and also a 2:2:2) - see separate Blog entry.
