According to Jewish folklore, the holiday was a reward given to the women of Israel because they refused to surrender their jewelry for the creation of the Golden Calf [which, the biblical Book of Exodus says, the Israelites worshipped in the desert after the Exodus from Egypt]. Because of their righteousness, the women were exonerated from working on Rosh Chodesh.
