At these holiday dates is variable due to the application of the combined solar-solar calendar.Another thing is characteristic of the New Year’s Jewish celebration: those at the moment of changing the weather are really a rich table, but in contrast to other peoples, it is confined only to sweet things, so the table their rich is blissful only with cakes.In the warm areas of the southern semicircle of our world, the New Year is celebrated in the summer season, without the snow and the winter wonder we are used to in the northern parts, but this does not reduce the greatness of the pompousness of its celebration.
