Moomas With Family

Moomas With Family

For the unfamiliar, Moomas is the nickname of the Establishment of the Celestial Cow, which handily falls on December 25th. You can read more about the Establishment here, or check out The True Meaning of Moomas and this post, which includes Moomas carols. For a more meditative note, I recommend these two posts from Egyptologist and Kemetic Orthodoxy leader Tamara Siuda: Winter Holidays and And There Were Stars.

I was driving during the winter solstice and Return of the Eye, and I was immersed in family on the 25th, so I did no ritual for my Mother Hethert-Nut’s big day. But my partner’s family loves the game Fax Machine, where a group of people write down a sentence, pass it to the left, draw a picture based on the sentence (and hide the sentence), then pass it again, so the next person writes a sentence based on the picture. This proceeds until each person receives their original stack of papers again, then the resulting picture-and-sentence “stories” are read and shown aloud, usually resulting in a lot of hilarity.

I started mine the best way I could think of, since it was Moomas. The sentence is mine; the drawing is my partner’s. :)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Moomas, however you may have celebrated it!
