May the people in power be gifted with true wisdom, both the politicians and the media...
May procrastination and overeating be a thing of the past...
I hope you like my "Fruit Heads," I put one together every year instead of serving a fish head or sheep head or whatever most other people do for Rosh Shanna. These fruit heads are from previous years; it's too early to do one for this year. I wait until the last minute, so it will stay fresh and perky throughout the two day Holiday.
There's the growing tradition to make up lots of punned blessings to expand on the classics:
- יהי רצון Be a head not a tail. (Said over the "head" on the table.)
- יהי רצון Have a sweet year, (Said over the apple dipped in honey.)
- יהי רצון that we learn to grin and "beer" it.
