existence in ancient Egypt
Shamm al-Nessim is only celebrated in Egypt and Sudan but that unfortunately, there is no definite evidence of its existence in ancient Egypt. I am going to remove the fake evidence that is provided in this article. --18.104.22.168 (talk) 05:17, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
According to the Egyptian newsletter from the Baseera Center - "Number of the day" Issue Number 1148 from monday April 17th 2017 - the following was stated: Ancient Egyptians first celebrated “Sham El- Nessim” around 2700 BC towards the end of the Third Dynasty and regarded the day as the beginning of time.
