Festival of the Valley ( Wadi Festival):

The beautiful valley festival honors the souls of the departed, also known as the feast of the dead, which took place between the harvest of Shemu and the flood of the Nile, Akhet. It celebrated the strong bond between the living and the dead and was a way of bringing the past into the present and with the help of the eternal godson into the future. The festival is famous for being the most popular in Egyptian history, as the procession begins with the statues of Amun, Mut and Khonsu (the Theban triad) being carried from their temples to visit the mortuary temples and necropolis across the river, as well as carrying the images of the deceased for their souls to meet them and the living to bring flowers, food and drink offerings, similar to the Day of the Dead in Mexico.
