For My Jewish Friends

Tomorrow (or rather, tomorrow at sunset) marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, celebrating God's sovereignty and the creation of the world. It is a time for reflection and self-evaluation. And it is a time to eat apples and honey to bring in a sweet and good year. As the article linked to above reports, "there is little similarity between Rosh Hashanah, one of the holiest days of the year, and the American midnight drinking bash and daytime football game."

But the best part? No work is permitted on Rosh Hashanah which runs from sunset on the 22nd to nightfall on the 24th! Rejoice!

That wouldn't be such a bad holiday to celebrate - While we should celebrate those things everyday - a day of no work would be most appreciated!
