One of the things that I’ve been thinking a lot about lately is how Egyptian festivals fit into my (northern hemisphere temperate) seasons. I mean, my lepidopterist’s calendar has a harvest festival for Min on Friday, and around here we’re … not safely past the last frost date.
Someone in a southern hemisphere temperate climate would likely be nicely in the middle of their main harvest period right around now, and be happily able to do a full-up reaping of the wheat or whatever (or at least think about it usefully) right around now.
The first stuff we harvest around here is greens.
So I’m thinking lettuce wraps for dinner on Friday might be a good thought.
(There may be a more substantive festival post later, but I wanted to get this thought squared away.)
