Ellul Trivia

What is forbidden only in the month of Elul?

The Aruch Hashulchan (O.Ch.581:12) writes, “It is forbidden to blow Shofar in the month of Elull in the night time, even if it’s done just for practice. (not to awaken the negative forces of the night.)” 
The Tur (O.Ch. 581) writes that in Ashkenaz the Minhag was, to blow Shofar every morning and evening  (בכל בקר וערב )

Reb Moishe Feinstein zt”l (Igros Moishe O.Ch. 4, 21,) writes:
“It is Mistaver (makes sense) Erev is not in the nighttime, but  during the daytime,
either after Mincha* or after early Ma’ariv. They used to Daven Ma’ariv in the daytime.”

*The Chaya Adam, brings the Minhag

of blowing after Mincha..
