When the moon is in the seventh house
This has been a year of cosmic confluences. Rosh Hashanah coincided with the autumnal equinox, Rosh Chodesh Tevet (during Chanukah) coincided with the winter solstice, and now Tu Bishvat (yes, that's right, BISHVAT) overlaps not only with Groundhog Day (another winter holiday that looks optimistically to spring) but (as Kol Ra'ash Gadol points out on Jewschool) with Ice Cream For Breakfast Day! Shabbat shalom and chag sameiach!
