I love Tu B’Schvat and celebrating trees and life.

Tu B’Schvat has to be one of the Jewish holidays with no second day. lol.
Wonderful explanation of potential life. Thank you.

Tu B'shvat

I remember celebrating when my great Uncle Sid was alive. We planted trees. I lost him when I was so young. I learned to pay respect to nature, and I would with a deep penetrating discernment note any environment I walk into. If there are no birds or they are quarreling, if the trees look sickly, I note impending danger. It never fails me. I believe, in my own way, every day is Tu B'shvat for me.
