Mummies and Happy New Year

Maybe they also sang "Auld Lang Syne".

"An ancient cemetery with 40 mummies inside body-shaped stone coffins and a necklace charm bearing the hieroglyphic inscription 'happy new year' has been found in the Nile Valley, Egypt's Antiquities Ministry has announced.

Mostafa Waziri, secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, said the scarab charm with the new year greeting had been unearthed last New Year's Eve in a 'wonderful coincidence'."

Oh, the things we find when we just open our eyes.
