29 Hatoor

edited January 2014 in Hymns Discussion
Some books say that the 29th (Commemoration of Annunciatinon, Nativity, Resurrection) is celebrated during all coptic months except tooba and amshir, while some exclude hatoor as well.

Which is correct?


  • hatoor is not excluded, if cast, this coptic year it came on a sunday, i think. Just link the celebration with saying akee or aktonk in selected hymns. from kiahk to easter, we never say Aktonk. 
  • actually old manuscripts say that it should be prayed in all months no exceptions. The exceptions of tuba and amshir are new
  • the whole rite of not saying aktonk during those month is kind of new. I would say both rites came to be together.
