Ancient Israel did not have a single, uniform calendar throughout its history, and problems in Israelite chronology are well-known. For the purposes of the calendar of festivals, however, the Feast of Trumpets was not a New Year's festival. The two critical texts (Lev ; Num ) never imply that it had anything to do with the new year.

According to Exo King James Version, about years ago, God promised the people of Israel to free them from the slavery in Egypt and unleash the tenth plague that was to 'Smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt.'. While Easter, as we know it today, was never a pagan festival, its roots and many of its traditions have associations with ancient pagan customs and beliefs. According to the New Unger’s Bible Dictionary: “The word Easter is of Saxon origin, Eastra, the goddess of spring, in whose honour sacrifices were offered about Passover time each year.
