I agree. As a European, the Med is too cold for me after the 1st week in November. You can be lucky but no guarantees. Most Europeans travel at a min to Canaries for heat.
December is actually a favoured month for Egypt - I have been there twice at that time of the year but I flew into Cairo/Aswan for my trips and then cruised the Nile. Cairo, itself, can be cool but Upper Egypt is lovely at that time of the year. I would never consider going to Alexandria if I wanted to see the Pyramids - too far; the best sites and sights are in Upper Egypt.
Anyway I hope everyone is safe and well.
