I’m not going to begin to try to explain the intricacies of Rosh Hashanah and the Jewish culture. But, there are some great myths that have driven the religion, as well as being some of the key aspects of the Old Testament in Christianity. I grew up hearing the stories about the “Tower of Babel,” and other Old Testament yarns, but never connected the dots on Jewish holidays until I was much older.
But, being a New Year’s Baby (01-01-54), I never fully embraced Rosh Hashanah, as it conflicted with my claim to New Years. And apparently, EA doesn’t fully embrace it either, as Rosh Hashanah actually starts on Sunday the 9th, and goes through the 11th. It is the Jewish celebration of the Jewish New Year!
And how is EA celebrating this event? By bringing back a bunch of Jewish items from the past, and giving us a couple of new Premium Decorations. Cool! (nobody said that the price of Heaven was free!)
I’m breaking an “Addicts Law” to post this…as we don’t usually post game content on weekends. But, the event will be more than halfway done by Monday…so, I’ll risk getting in trouble from “Mom” (who is happily at home with Sam, our newest Little Addict). So….Let’s take a look!
