It is traditional to wish one another from after Rosh Hashanah and through Yom Kippur, "Gemar chatimah tovah" -- "may you be finalized and 'sealed' be for the good." "Have an easy fast," is also an appropriate wish for this day... 


"Chag sameach" or "Happy holiday" is not the most appropriate greetings for this solemn day!


[Ed. note: also read "Why do we say, "be inscribed and sealed for a good year"?"].

Rosh Hashanah
The Jewish New Year. An early autumn two day holiday marking the creation of Adam and Eve. On this day we hear the blasts of the ram's horn and accept G-d's sovereignty upon ourselves and the world. On Rosh Hashanah we pray that G-d should grant us all a sweet New Year.
Yom Kippur
Day of Atonement. This late-autumn high-holiday is the holiest day of the year. We devote this day to repentance and all healthy adults are required to fast.
