The Jewish new year and TOO MUCH HOMEWORK!

Hello everybody!

I am very excited because I get to go to my friend's house for Rosh Hashanah tonight! He told me that it is a holiday to celebrate the Jewish new year, and that we will eat apples and honey because it symbolizes a sweet new year to come. Also, he said there is something called a
shofar, which a kind of trumpet made from a ram's horn that his dad will blow into. Cool! I've never seen a ram's horn close up. I wonder if they will let me try it out, too. This is going to be so much fun!

My mom almost didn't let me go because I have so much homework to do these days. Sometimes it takes me two hours a night! Mom says I have to do it though, because that's how I will learn all of the things they are trying to teach us in school. I still think it's too much. So, I had to plan ahead and do all my homework yesterday night so that I could go to my friend's house tonight. It was worth it though- he says the food will be delicious!

Okay, I should go, but if you want to send me letters, I'd love to read them, and if you want to hear more about all the fun things that happen to me, you can read my latest book, Nicholas in Trouble!

Your friend,
Nicholas
