This may have
escaped your notice if you are of the goyish persuasion, but it’s Rosh Hashana,
the Jewish New Year.
Best thing about
Rosh Hashana: you are supposed to eat sweet foods, symbolizing the wish for a
sweet year. Apples dipped in honey are recommended,
as are dates and honeycakes. Chocolate chip cookies are not traditional, but you have my permission to eat those too. You’re welcome.
Worst part: there
isn’t one. That whole fasting and
atoning for sins thing happens on Yom Kippur, 10 days later. So live it up.
