Well, aside from my approaching foray into Judaism (which i may tackle in a like at some point later), there’s a much more simple and incredibly selfish reason to love the High Holidays in Los Angeles:
There’s no traffic.
Seriously. It takes me roughly 35 min (on an awesome day) to 50 min on average to get to work.
Today, on Rosh Hashanah?
Happy New Year Everyone!
(note: the only time I had a quicker commute was during the immigrant rights march where the entire hispanic population of the city congregated downtown. This was not nearly enough to change my pro-immigrant rights stance I guarantee you… but I don’t think it helped the cause since there were a good lot of people talking about how great it was to have no commute.)
