The Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah, celebrating the start of the year 5775 begins tonight at sundown. Whether or not you are Jewish, I vote that you do something celebratory tonight or tomorrow. Let me tell you why.
Many cultures have New Year’s traditions and rituals, and most of them are fun and involve tasty food. In addition to this Jewish celebration, there’s the Persian holiday Nowrooz, all the variants on the Lunar New Year across Asian cultures, and America’s own version with Dick Clark in Times Square. Why not have everyone celebrate everything? What better way to foster understanding and cross cultural togetherness? Plus- New Years times four or five sounds fun doesn’t it? Who’s in? Start tomorrow with some apples and honey for a sweet new year.
Be well and love well.
