    I am Jewish. Our autumn festival is also our New Year – Rosh Hashanah – Head of the year.
    The greeting is Shona Tova – Good New Year. It is an abbreviation of a much longer greeting.
    The beauty and joy of this song in Hebrew, of which I understand very little, epitomizes our New Year.

    • Thanks so much for sharing! It’s amazing how many different cultures and traditions are celebrated here in Canada – and it’s wonderful that our fountain pen community is able to see so many parts of it 🙂

    • I also like the lotus + egg yolk! The egg yolk is my favourite part. Mooncakes are getting more and more expensive – I read somewhere about a tradition stacking 13 mooncakes, but I don’t think we could afford that!! 🙂
