From the ancient texts, Book of Numbers and Psalms, the ritual horn should be sounded for solemn festivals and the New Moon. In older traditions, the shofar was blown to signal sacrifices, call people to assemble and even warn the people of coming disaster.

You don’t need to wait till September 18 to begin using this greeting since, like the non-Jewish person uses “Happy New Year” from a few days before, so does the Jew. So, if you run into friends who greet you with “Shana Tova,” smile and greet them the same way, right back. If you wish to use a greeting more specific to the Day of Atonement you can wait to begin using that till after September 19 though the rule is never hard and fast.
