Respecting the gods

The Egyptians believed in many god and goddesses which made them polytheism. They care about their gods so much that they had a building for each of the gods and in them they would have a statue. Every day the priest and his most trusted assistance would go in the building and bathe them and clothes them, and would then swipe away the foot prints he left to show that he wasn't there. What ever the gods ate the Egyptians would eat the same. Every few days of the year the priest would hold festivals to worship.
