Glossary: Wep Ronpet

The ancient Egyptian New Year festival, which usually falls somewhere in early to mid-August. It’s calculated according to the heliacal rising of Sirius, and it coincides with the annual flooding of the Nile. It also occurs when the Sun passes through the constellation Leo – situating it directly beneath the Big Dipper – and it marks the anniversary of when LV-426 began development in 1997. For this reason, it’s the most important LV-426 holiday aside from Samhain, and to make things easier for ourselves, we always observe it on August 15. For us, Wep Ronpet celebrations usually involve going camping.
There’s nothing like celebrating Wep Ronpet deep in the woods!
