Today is the Jewish holiday Shavuot

Here's what's up
  1. It was a grain holiday
    People offered the First Fruits of their harvest as a sacrifice to God in the Temple
  2. When the Temple was destroyed, we transformed the holiday into a celebration of the giving of the Torah at Mt Sinai
  3. There is a custom of all night learning to honor the spirit of the holiday
    Energy drank!
  4. And for some unknown reason lost to time, we celebrate by eating dairy products
    Ice cream!
  5. Happy Shavuot!
