Ancient Calendar & Pagan Holidays: July 25th: Furrina & Anuket

Rome is at it again, for today in Ancient History would have been called Furrinalia, sacred to the Goddess Furrina, who presided over springs and waters.

Interestingly enough, these festivals marked the days that all Romans would return from their holidays (vacations) from the countryside. When they did so, a great feast in honor of the Goddess would commence.

Egypt would celebrate “The Welcoming of the Rising Nile” by having a Feast of Anuket.
