Happy New Year:)
That is is you are Jewish!!!  Today is the first day of Rosh Hashanah.  It started at sundown last night.  Most Jewish Holidays start at sundown the day before and end at sundown.  Rosh Hashanah actually lasts for 2 days.  It's the only Jewish holiday that is a new moon holiday the only one that is celebrated for 2 days by Jews all around the world.  So, last night we went with our human and her family to our human's grandmother's apartment to eats supper and then once it was sundown to celebrate and eat sweet foods for a sweet (and lucky and happy) new year.  Jewish people use a different way of counting days, months and years and the year that starts today is year 5773!!!!  There are lots of websites to look at if you want to learn more about Judaism or Jewish holidays and traditions.
L'shanah Tovah!!!  Is the traditional greeting for Jewish New Year, it means "for a good and sweet new year".
Here we are eating dinner (everything was delicious)
Traditional foods:  honey cake, apple cake and slices of apple to dip in honey, yummm.  We don't like apples that much but honey makes everything taste better.
Isn't this a cute picture???  (it's a closeup of the apple slices and honey)
