A Holy Day
We all know what today is. That's right, it's the day when Jews traditionally go to the movies in the afternoon and then dine on Chinese food. At least that was the tradition back in the 'alter heim' (e.g. America).
If not for the Jews, who esle would have kept all the Chinese restaurants and movie theaters in business on Xmas?
But then Shmulke Bernstein's went out of business and the treppenwitz family moved to Israel... and sadly, the traditions have largely fallen by the wayside. After all, for most of us here in Israel (except for those in Bethlehem and Nazereth), today is just another work day.
I have to tell you, I love living here, and have no misgivings whatsoever.
But I gotta admit... I could really go for a matinée, followed by a nice serving of chicken Egg Foo Yung.
Happy Wednesday! ;-)
[and yes, Virginia... I'm aware this is not an authentic sign.]

I just had Chinese for lunch (in the U.S.) and am now at work. So there. :)
