Here is some infomation about what I learned about what Egypt does for their holiday tradition. Egypt's Holiday Greeting is "Merry Christmas", Joyeux Noel" in French, and "I 'D Miilad Said Oua Saida" in Arabic. The location is Africa, and the tree type is cultural. Some of Egypt's decorations are designed, and reflect both the ideals of Coptic Church, and Egyptain Culture. The pyramid on their cultural tree is one of the decorations. It represents Egypt's antiquity while the ankh. The ankh serves as a symbol of the cross for the Coptic Church, which follows the eastern rites of Chirstianity. It and the images of saints found on the Museum's Egyptain tree are traditional symbols of the Coptic Church. Another decoration that Egypt has on their tree is the Ancient Egyptain Symbol for Life. It represents the blending of modernity and old custom's in Egypt. Some of the Traditions are that their Christmas is preceded by 40 days of fasting for strict members of the Coptic Church.The Christians in the Coptic Church eat any kind of animal products during the month of December. When it is Christmas Eve (January 6th), people go to church for the evening survice dressed in new clothes and find hundreds of candles illuminating the building in honor of the candles Jesus lit to keep the Virgin Mary catching cold on the night of the Nativity. On Christmas Morning, friends and family visit, and share a shortbread called kaik and a drink called Shortbat. I think that Egyptians have a fun, and wonderful Christmas. I think I would like to go there one day, and see their Christmas Traditions.
