Kemetic Reform Calendar – Year 20 (2024-25)

So, what are all these dates?

The dates, including weekdays, below are for both major and weekly observances in the Kemetic Reform tradition. Major holidays, such as Upet Ronpet (Kemetic New Year's) and the Opet Festival, are given in bold print.

Our weekly live streams are always hosted on Fridays at approximately 8:30 to 8:45pm Central US time. To determine festal themes for Friday services, we start with the general calendars in Circle of the Sun for major holidays and Celebrating the Egyptian Gods for various deities' feast days. Usually a festival is observed on the nearer Friday (either before or after the actual date), unless the farther day helps avoid repetition or conflict with other observances.

Phases of the moon, which can be observed ritually at individual members' choosing, are listed with asterisks (*). Circle of the Sun includes lunar rituals, except for First Denit, which you can read here (link forthcoming). You can also check out the handy tables for lunar dates made by Celeri at the page bottom.

Decade Feasts, also marked with asterisks (*), are literally 'Tenth-Day Feasts'. The ancient Egyptian week lasted ten days, and the tenth day was a time to honor the deceased as well as their eternal king, Osiris. When the Decade and Regular service coincide, they are combined in our live stream ritual.

Noteworthy non-Kemetic holidays are listed in italics. New for this year – a dedicated Mesopotamian ritual calendar! You can read about it and plan ahead here. And remember, deity names are generally given in their more well-known Greek forms (Isis for Aset, Anubis for Anpu) for ease of recognition.
