Happy Luuuuuuuuurve™ Day, Baby

Today is the 15th of Ab in the Jewish calendar – which sounds like a day you ought to do some type of crunch workout. But no – it’s the day of love, celebrating matchmaking, romance, and happiness. If you’re in Israel, you probably hear a lot of Barry White on the radio, I’m guessing.

But here is my very favorite line from my very favorite page from ALLLLL of Wikipedia:

The fifteenth day of Ab was a popular holiday during the Second Temple. The holiday celebrated the wood-offering brought in the temple.(See, Nehemiah 10:35) Josephus refers to this holiday as the Feast of Xylophory (“Wood-bearing”)

FOR THE LOVE OF POTPOURRI PLEASE, someone, write a paranormal romance set in the ancient temple, with the hero, Xylophory, and his enormous offering of wood?! PLEASE?!

[Thanks to Darlene Marshall for the heads up.]

    I can just see all the unmarried men in the land lining up to present their offerings . . . sort of like that one scene in Last American Virgin. . .

    How perfect is that? Today happens to be my 20th wedding anniversary. Guess I picked the right guy!  Oh, and on the vampire thing, I’ll get back to you…working on a new plot now even as I type…

    I’ll get right on it! My family is begging me to write a Jewish romance, so thanks for giving me the plot and the hero’s name!  W00T!
