How We Celebrate the Feast of Trumpets!
The old testament commands a list of sacrificial offering to be given on this day but like I discussed in my earlier posts Keeping the Feast Days of the Bible & What is the Feast of Trumpets, there is no need for a blood sacrifice because Yeshua (Jesus) paid that price once and for all. And the Bible has no set of rules on HOW to celebrate the feast days since Messiah’s arrival over 2000 years ago. With no rules you have freedom to “keep the feast” pretty much however you feel draws you closer to God on His appointed days!
How **We** Celebrate the Feast of Trumpets!
Since the Feast is a feast and it is about trumpets, well I tend to go with trumpet themed foods!!!
A few ideas are:
Tortilla Trumpets (But I fill them with Baked Chicken and Spinach Flautas filling )
Harvest Hash (using bugle chips)
Shofar Shaped Cookies!!
For more great food ideas check out my Pinterest Board:
We decorate the house in fall colors with leaves and harvest decor and hand made shofar wall hangings.
We put up fall color curtains and lights on our pergola!
It is fall and we want to go outside in the cool of the evening. (just like when God would walk with Adam in the Garden)
The kids get out their glow sticks and wear them remembering they are called to be a light to the world. This also helps mom’s keep up with their little ones after dark and all kids (and adults) love glow sticks!!
We put on praise music or sing songs. Singing together is my favorite! Here are some songs you can sing:
Blow The Trumpet In Zion – Lyric Sheets
Days of Elijah – Paul Wilbur – Lyric Sheets
We light our small fire pit, put out Kosher marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate bars so everyone can make S’mores!
We read What is the “Feast of Trumpets?” and talk about the soon coming bridegroom.
We read about the tradition of the Tashlikh, meaning “cast away,” one tradition we use from the Jewish people. Then using chalk, we write our sins on black smooth stones and go to our nearby creek or the lake. We take time, considering each sin,we pray a prayer of repentance and we cast the stones into the water, knowing the water will wash away the words just as the Blood of Christ washes away our sins. We do this as a way to bring ourselves in touch with our sinful nature, expose it, repent of it, and in preparation for the day of Atonement that comes in 10 days, commit to “go and sin no more.”
We sound the Shofar while the kids sound their plastic ones. This is a wake up call, a call of repentance, a call for unity, a reminder of the Last Trump at the end of days… the sound of the Shofar can mean many things to many people!

|Yemenite Shofar, 32 – 35 In.
Listen to the sacred sounds of the shofar and rejoice in the presence of the Holy One! Imported from Israel, connect more deeply with the roots of our faith with our authentic Yemenite shofar. The sound of the shofar can represent freedom and liberty, can be a reminder of the 10 Commandments given at Mt. Sinai and is used to celebrate the creation of the world. Measurements are taken along the spiral. From www.ChristianBook.com

What fun! I begin to rest on the sabbaths as well, but was unsure what to do with the other annual feast. Since we make homemade tortillas, this would be a blast! Thank you kindly for the details of fun.
