Sophie the giraffe wishes you all a Happy Valentine!

Today is a quite a day !

Not only it is:

("Gong Xi Fa Cai" to all who celebrate the Year of the Tiger!)

 but also

Valentine's Day can be the Day to celebrate Love but it can also celebrate Friendship.

In Israel there is two days of Love per year.This is really nice!

The second day is in summer. It is Tu B'Av, the 15th Day of the month of Av and it is both an ancient and modern holiday. Originally a post-biblical day of joy, it served as a matchmaking day for unmarried women in the second Temple period (before the fall of Jerusalem in 70 C.E.). Now it resembles Valentine's Day.

So on this special day, Sophie Hagirafa, Chan, Pie, and Gnon want to wish you all a Happy Valentine!

Thank you Dan!
