Hag Log: Oh dear! How embarrassing.
I have been approached by a few people, among them R.T., who have gently pointed out my mistake in explaining the meaning of the Jewish festival of Shavuot. And no, it’s not about the ancient tradition of bringing the first fruits to the temple in Jerusalem, either, nor the festival of the harvest. Well it is, but everyone knows that they are just excuses.

Shavuot is, of course, a celebration of the invention of the CHEESE CAKE! Silly me.

And thank you again, Our Sis, for your excellent one last night.
