The Egyptian Calendar has three seasons. These seasons were called Akhet, Proyet, and Shomu. Read about these Egyptian seasons below.
Akhet - Akhet was the first season. It lasted from June 21st to October 21st on the American calendar. Akhet consisted of four 30 day months.
Proyet - Proyet was the second season. It lasted from October 21st to February 21st. It also contained four months.
Shomu - Shomu was the third, and last, season. It lasted from February 21st to June 21st. Like the other seasons, it is four months. Shomu was the season that we call Summer.
The Ancient Egyptians supposedly had a 360 day calendar, but, if you look into it, they had 5 days of feasting and celebration, that were not on the calendar. In this way, they actually had 365 days in a year.
The American and the Egyptian
calendar both have:
A summer (theirs is longer, though)
365 days in a year
The American and Egyptian calendars
are different because:
They only had three seasons
They had different names for their seasons
