Holidays people!

I come from a place that we celebrate everything I do mean everything I think we had the most holidays in the world. I was curious as to what holidays does Egypt celebrates, as I found them I decided it to share them with you.

 January 7 - Christmas (Old Calendarists) Celebrates the nativity of Jesus Christ, according to the Oriental Coptic Orthodox Church (Old calendarist)
January 25- National January 25th Revolution [1] Egyptian Revolution Day Celebrates the day of the beginning of the Egyptian revolution
 April 25- Sinai Liberation Day Celebrates the final withdrawal of all Israeli military forces from the Sinai Peninsula in 1982.
May 1- Labour Day
 July 23-  Revolution Day Celebrates the Egyptian Revolution of 1952
October 6 -Armed Forces Day Celebrates the crossing of the Suez Canal by Egyptian forces during the October War

Sad to say they are not much! So I guess looking forward to free days is not going to be my thing anymore :(
Oh well everything changes. I do look forward to Ramadan, I have heard the greatest things about it. Ramadan is a month of spiritual reflection. It last 30 days and they have the greatest decorations so when that comes I am sure to be posting a looot of pictures!

I will say I am missing home already with only 6 national holidays in Egypt compared to the 26!!! you will be enjoying this year! LOL
