Being Jewish, we have High Holy Days.

First is Rosh Ha Shanah, which is Jewish New Year, where we say prayers, eat apples and honey and honey cake for a sweet New Year.

Nine days later is Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), where we go on a complete fast for 24 hours and pray. Then we celebrate by breaking the fast.

Then, later in the fall (before November), we have Sukkot (Feast of Booths or Tabernacles) where we decorate a tabernacle and stay in it for 8 days and have our meals looking out at the stars.

These are my favorite holidays. Even more than Chanukah, but that's another post.

Hugs to you all. emoticon

Shalom

What holidays do you celebrate during fall, and HOW do you celebrate them? emoticon

Then give to the world the best you have, and the best will come back to you! Madeline Bridges
