29th of Coptic Month
  • Hello everyone,

    I was wondering when the next time was to celebrate the three feasts on the 29th of each coptic month because I remember there were some months we don't celebrate them in.

    After Pentecost.
  • I was taught that the 29th is not celebrated in Toba and Amshir (and Nase of course). I forget the reasons though. I'll have to check up on this.

    It is (I believe) because of Lent. The reason that people came up with is that they symbolize the law and the prophets. I will try to get a source to qualify.

    Because we cannot say aktonk during those days
