Chag Sameach! Happy Shavuot! It's finally finally finally Shavuot! A holiday all about the giving of the Torah and yummy dairy foods.
I am now freshly shaved, and I'm happy to report that between Pesach and Lag B'Omer I managed to grow a respectable amount of facial hair, so that point of the new year's resolution is all done! And it's only June!
So tonight begins the holiday of Shavuot, when we celebrate the children of Israel receiving the Torah. Because our forefather were all lazy and slept through the thing, we today spend the night awake, studying Toray and drinking way too much coffee for our own good. It's of course one of the great things about the night. Also the fact that my younger kids who wanted to stay awake all night are now fast asleep in the middle of the family room. :)
