1. Islamic Holidays
Most Islamic holidays and festivals follow the Islamic calendar. This is lunar-based, so dates vary each year in relation to the Western calendar. You may find it useful to get hold of an annual prayer calendar from a local Islamic cultural centre in your own country.
2. Coptic festivals
The dates of Christmas (January 6/7), Epiphany (January 19) and the Annunciation (March 21) are specified in the Julian calendar used by The Orthodox Church, but Easter and its related feast days are viewed according to the solar Coptic calendar, and therefore differ from both the Orthodox and Western dates by up to one month. A Coptic festival (of Pharaonic Origin) celebrated by all Egyptians is the Sham el-Nessim, a coming-of-spring festival which provides the excuse for mass picnics. Its name literally means "Sniffing the Breeze".
