Sunday 18th August is the Egyptian Feast of Wagy.
Taking place seventeen days after the Egyptian celebrations of New Year's Day, there was the more sombre feast of Wagy, when families paid respect to their ancestors.
They came to the tombs of the deceased, with offerings, performing rituals, specifically "fumigations" - producing fumes - smoke.
The ceremonies were often followed by a funerary meal.
