Missed festival
« on: October 04, 2013, 10:37:27 am »
Hotep! So, I totally never really officially observed the Feast of the Beautiful Valley. Amun has been subtly poking at that fact, I think. I just wanted an outside opinion: should I do an belated observance, or just make a point to make an offering to Amun in its place? It seems an offering is going to happen regardless, but I just wanted to ask about whether it is appropriate to consider it a belated festival observation.

Em hotep :)

Sometimes it's easy to miss festivals and then it suddenly pings in your mind that you've gone past it, and it sucks. If you missed it because you were ill or something then that's even more sucky.

If Amun is poking at you then I think you should make a point of saying sorry and to give Him an offering. He's obviously looking for one ;)

I like what Aref said :)

There can be all sorts of reasons we might miss observing a festival or special day (or even plain miss a day with our gods).

Such omissions can always be amended with politeness and humility.
