The Ancient Egyptian’s would have celebrated the birth of Osiris today. Osiris was one of the most popular gods of Egypt. Not only did he change things for Egyptians but many Pagans believe he aided in countless other Religions and Cultures to come. For example, many believe the Christ Mythos is very much related to that of Osiris.
In Egypt, however, Osiris was said to have ruled a Golden Age. He was beloved of his people, teaching them much until his brother Set and 72 other Conspirators destroyed him. Even in death, though, Osiris still found a way to carry on his legacy. He ended up becoming the God of the Underworld, proving to Egyptians that there was life after death, and promising them renewed life under his protection and domain.
