Shabbos Frivolity: Fire!

It’s tempting, of course, to devote this Shabbos Frivolity to the putative Rapture, but then it’s not really relevant, is it? I mean, yes, Shnirele Perele, but it’s a whole different concept of the endtimes.

Anyway, tomorrow is Log B’Omer, the thirty-third day of the counting of the Omer, traditionally celebrated with picnics, archery and bonfires. So, for your frivolity, here are some very pleasant dancers doing the Bonfire Hora:

And here are some toddlers with torches:

Toddlers with torches. I don’t see how anything can possibly go wrong. And by the way, the lyrics to the first song in the toddler video go “fire, fire, bonfire”, more or less. The lyrics to the Bonfire Hora, on the other hand, go something along the lines of rise up, you sons of poverty and oppression, rise up and dance around the bonfire! But then, you don’t need lyrics to dance.

Tolerabimus quod tolerare debemus,
