Celebrating the Beautiful Festival

Posted in Being Kemetic, Festivals at 8:54 am by

Saryt has posted about her experience with the Set, LotO ritual — awesome!

So her comment that she enjoyed sharing in another person’s ritual got me to thinking — wouldn’t it be cool to have a Kemetic-blog-wide shared festival event? Where people can share their initial plans for how they intend to celebrate, draw inspiration from and build upon each other’s ideas, and then post a description/commentary/photo essay on what the actual experience was like?

I was thinking the Beautiful Feast of the Valley might be a good one to undertake. It’s a pretty universal, major festival, and it’s far enough in the future that people would have time to plan and coordinate. (The festival begins on the new moon in the second month of Shomu, which is around May 9 this year, and it runs for ten days, which gives people a lot of flex in when they schedule their celebrations.)

– Kiya on looking ahead to and celebrating the BFV in 2012
– oh, hey — I’ve celebrated it too (though not in great depth)

Any thoughts?

    I love the idea of a blog-wide festival event! I also love reading others’ stories on how they celebrate and perform ritual, and I love seeing photos from shrines, and…

    In other words, count me in. :D

    I think the idea of a blog-wide festival event is just simply awesome!.
    I love reading others experiences and stories with how they perform rituals and seeing pictures from their shrines. I would so be up for participating in that.
