Yes, indeedy - it’s that time again. Tomorrow is Hoshana Rabah, AKA Whomping Willow Day!
We Red Sea Pedestrians may not handle snakes or flagellate ourselves, but we have our own nutty rituals. Schlepping palm fronds and fruit while marching around in circles? Smacking willow branches against the ground to knock the leaves off? Hey, why not? At least it keeps us off the street corner.
