Happy Tu B'Shevat!!

Tu B'Shevat is the Jewish New Year for Trees.

It's the time that the earliest bloom trees in the land emerge from their winter snooze and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle.

It's customary to celebrate the day by eating fruits associated with Israel: grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and dates.

So to all the trees out there, big and small...
Happy Birthday!
