Fun Friday Video:"Squirrels in Autumn"

Autumn officially arrived in the Northern Hemisphere on  September 22, 2017 at 4:02pm. Autumn is my absolute favorite season! I love everything about it.  The vibrant colors, the cool, crisp temps, (except for the next few days in Michigan where it will be in the mid 80s),  football, Halloween, and so much more.

Along with my love of cats, I have always loved watching squirrels. Cody does too and I bet many of you kitties enjoy watching them as well!

So furiends, today, Cody and I are sharing a video we found on YouTube that we feel is a fun way  for you to celebrate the first day of autumn with us! Enjoy!

Wishing You Sweetness and Peace


FROM INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS TIMES:

Rosh Hashanah is one of the holiest holidays in the Jewish religion. The two-day holiday begins at sundown and celebrates the Jewish New Year. During the celebration, Jewish people take the time to appreciate and accept God as their king.
The Jewish calendar, which runs on the lunar cycle, determines the date of the holiday each year. The celebration begins at sundown and the following day marks the first full day of the celebration. Jewish calendar dates end at nightfall, which means this year's Rosh Hashanah celebration will begin at sundown on Oct. 2 and end at nightfall on Oct. 4.
In Hebrew, "Rosh Hashanah" means “Head of the Year” and it's also known as the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah celebrates the day that God completed the creation of the world and highlights the relationship between God and humanity.
While Conservative and Orthodox Jews observe the holiday over the course of two days, most Reform Jews celebrate Rosh Hashana for one day.
An important tradition during this holiday is Tashlich, which calls for Jews to go find a body of water, be it the ocean, river or stream, and cast away their sins. This is done symbolically by throwing bread into the water and the act allows people to reflect and correct themselves so they can focus on a new year.
At home, families gather for dinner prior to attending service the night of the holiday. They recite blessings over candles and wine. Families also indulge in challah bread or apples dipped in honey.


This year it is extra special that the

 FIRST FULL DAY of
 Rosh Hashanah coincides with:

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE
SEPTEMBER 21, 2017

The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution 36/37, the General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to “commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.”


May peace be around you and inside of you.
