Weird thing of the day 27 May 2005/18 'Iyyar 5765 (Day 33 of the `Omer)


Today is the 33rd day of the ‘Omer (LaGh ba‘Omer), which celebrates the end of the period during which most of R. ‘Aqiva’’s students died and the anniversary of the death of R. Shim‘on ben Yoha’y. For some reason, this has ended up as a day of picnics and bonfires.

I’ve got a whole bunch of weird political stuff on my desktop, which is the closest I’m getting to a bonfire, so those will be today’s weird things.Enjoy.
