Celebrate the Jewish holiday, and the fruits of the Earth
This year Tu B'Shvat (the 15th of Shvat) falls on the Sabbath, January 25 evening through January 26 night fall. Jews worldwide will be celebrating this festive holiday also known as "New Year for the Trees" by blessing and eating fruits and nuts. Machane Yehuda market in Jerusalem is in full gear with fresh fruit, dried fruit, fruit juices, nuts, flowers, etc.
Some of the delicious foods used in Tu B'Shvat seders (meals). This festive day also marks the beginning of spring in Israel. It's a time of optimism, new beginnings, growth and appreciation. Some people send fruit baskets while others attend communal seders like the one in Tsfat, Tu B'Shvat at Ascent .
