Kemetic Reform Calendar - Year 18 (2022-23)

Key for Dates: Dates given in normal black type are official Temple observances, broadcast on Fridays unless otherwise indicated. Entries in bold indicate major observances, such as New Year's and the Khoiakh Mysteries. Date entries marked with an asterisk (*) are lunar or 'decade' observances, which can be honored in one's home or in private groups at members' own choosing. Dates given in italics represent non-Kemetic holidays that may be of significance. Note that deity names are generally given in their more well-known Greek forms (Isis for Aset, Anubis for Anpu) for ease of recognition.

Have a question about a major holiday? Check our Basics of Kemetic Reform page. What are 'Decade' observances? More on that coming soon, but in short answer, the end of a Kemetic week. Ra and Osiris are honored, and prayers and offerings are given for the Blessed Dead. And for our Mesopotamian Pagan friends, a couple of relevant dates are given in italics...more on that is in the works!
