The Holy Convocations of Yahweh: When Yahweh says we are to celebrate His Feasts, He uses a Hebrew word that means appointed times or appointments.

We can find them in the Leviticus 23.
We shall not throw the Julian/ Gregorian calendar away. But we need to learn God’s Calendar and use His days and ways to worship, honor and draw close to Him.

Why is the beginning of our new year placed in the middle of a dead winter ?? How did the celebration of New Year’s Eve begin ?? And where did the many customs surrounding it originate ??
