Patriotic blue and white marshmallows!
A limited edition especially for Israel's Independence Day (starting tonight) and also for the upcoming Lag BaOmer holiday when kids gather around bonfires.
City Daily Photo bloggers are posting their favorite "Let's eat!" photo today for Theme Day.
If you say "let's eat" to an American Jew, what comes to mind is the old joke:
How can you explain most Jewish holidays? Simple: They tried to kill us; we won; let's eat.
Think of the history and the feasting that go with Chanuka, Purim, Pesach, and Independence Day, for example. True, eh?
Today we are in the very somber and painful Remembrance Day when we think about the many thousands we have lost to wars and terrorism, and tonight we must transition into the fireworks, happiness, and barbecues of our 69th Independence Day.
The bitter and the sweet.
