Shana tova!

Modified holiday celebrations here -- found the apples and honey, not so much the challah and kneidelach. Actually last night I brought home take-away Iftar food (all of the local shops have stands with great food made for breaking the fast) and at least one of the items looked like kneidelach. However, it's got a yohgurt based sauce and it's pretty spicy, so it's only a slight similarity.

Didn't find families to celebrate with - maybe I should have started looking earlier!

The picture of Matan is in a modified pujabi (punjabi?) -- he didn't like it knee-length, so I cut it off and sewed to the length he prefers.

Matan and I are both off school for the Eid holiday until Wednesday, and then I'm off another week after that as we bridge to Durga Puja, the Hindu holiday. Of course, it's conveniently off for all of Rosh Hashana through Yom Kippur, as well! Who knew?


  1. Shana Tova ve Metoka to both of you from your family in Sweden.
    Thinking of you. I really enjoy reading your blogg.

  2. L'shanah tova tikateivu, my friend!

  3. Shana tova! This is a special Rosh Hashanah that you'll always be able to remember. :-)

  4. When you cut off the "panjabi" to that length, it becomes a "fatua". :)
