This is the Jewish New Year's first full day, Year 5777, I believe. It is also the first day of the Islamic New Year, I think. We get to celebrate NewYear's day several times a year here in this country. It is what comes with our freedoms. There is the Western calendar's New Year's Day on January 1, and then the Chinese have their New Year begin in February some time. If you like New Year celebrations you get to have several each year in this country. If you heard any ram's horns blowing last evening that was your Jewish friends feasting at the beginning of their celebration. Lots of good food too. Wish people happy new year as part of our celebration of diversity. In some other parts of the world diversity is looked down upon.
