Christ gave the Lord’s Supper in place of Passover, so why not celebrate it then and watch in prayer with the following modification? The disciples understood their heritage that judgments fell at Passover. They were probably thinking Passover when Christ said,You don’t know the day or hour. The Greek word, eido, meant be aware, consider, understand. Christ was saying, You don’t understand, and each time He said it, He gave an example of a provision in the law for Passover a month later “as in the days of Noah” when the Flood came with Passover timing, but in the 2nd month, Gen 7:4,11; Exod 12:3.
As it had in ancient times, the shofar is significant to the celebration of Yom Kippur also called the Day of Atonement.

Honey Dishes: The tradition of dipping apples in honey is a seasonal tradition that makes the most of the year’s harvest. The pilgrims couldn’t have done better. An event with many guests will require a well coordinated and thought out array of apples and honey. As guests may want to engage in this activity as an appetizer, or while standing. Use different glass serving dishes and bowls for best effect. If you’re serving different types of honey; lavender, organic or traditional varieties, labeling the bowls isn’t a bad idea!
Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the month of Tishrei, which is one of twelve months in the Jewish Calendar.

This is why Paul could say, “The times and seasons.you know perfectly,” 1Thess 5:1-6. Many Christians recognize Easter as a paganized holiday. What do Easter eggs and bunny rabbits have to do with Christ’s resurrection? This year, instead of Easter, why not celebrate communion on the eve of 2nd Passover, Sunday evening, May 10, and remember to “watch” in prayer, reflecting on the whipping and pain Christ took for us as we watch like He said, Matthew 26:38, Revelation3:3.
