>Religion & Holidays

>My Husband is Jewish and I am Catholic. Neither of us are really religious. Basically we believe in god. However, we both agree that Samantha should learn about all different religions and choose when she gets older what she believes in. Therefore, when it comes to religious holidays, we try to educate her and teach her how they are celebrated.

This Saturday, we are going over the to my husbands parents house for Rosh Hashanah. Rosh Hoshanah is the Jewish New Year. We will celebrate the new year by eating apples and honey which symbolize a sweet year. Also, each year we try to taste a new fruit. There will also be challah bread which symbolizes the sycle of the year.

For Rosh Hoshanah, we look back on the year that past and the mistakes we have made. We think of ways to change them in the upcoming years in order to become a better person.

Thought I would share this with you guys!
