Hayom harat olam. Today the world was created. Who doesn't keep to their Jewish calendar these days! Even if you have decoupled Easter from Passover, you'll still find interesting the fact that the Jews have a calendar almost 5781 years old. And today is the day G-d said "Let there be light" on the first day of creation.
The sixth day of creation is Rosh Hashana-- because the head of the year begins when man (Adam-- from the Hebrew words "earth/dust" and "similar" because Adam was from the dust, and had faculties that reflected G-d's faculties, so to speak***, of intellect and emotion) So the creation of Man is the head of the year, Rosh Hashana.
Friday night is the beginning of Rosh Hashana. A sweet new year to all. May we all be signed and sealed in the book of life.

The Torah begins with the Fibonacci Series. It's true! It's a cumulative song. :)

I wonder, wonder who, who-oo-ooh, who
(Who wrote the book of love)
Tell me, tell me, tell me
Oh, who wrote the Book of Love
I've got to know the answer
Was it someone from above?

Line by line, every good boy does fine!
There you go, it explains why David knew when it was midnight -- it was always midnight in David's house. Midnight oil, the miracle anointing oil that never runs out! Full of love, full of understanding -- the FACE of God.
Who'd want to look away even for a second?
The Light of the World pierced the darkness that was on the face of the deep.

This calendar, in its figuring, means that the pyramids are less than 4000 years old.
