A Sign of the New Year

Things have been a bit crazy, with all of these holidays whipping about. I just wanted to post this seasonal photo, before it's out of season.

This is what shopping in the produce section of any Israeli supermarket looks like just before the New Year. Everyone's anxious to try a "new fruit" for the new year, which seems like a nice enough idea. Then one actually goes shopping, and finds that our generally mild-mannered grocery stores have become landing pads for an annual extra-terrestrial invasion.

Happy New Year, everybody!

Cool. I recognize the star fruit, and the rest DOES look like extraterrestrials...
