Happy 5770

If I hadn’t fallen behind in reading Michael A. Burstein’s Livejournal, Mabfan’s Musing, I’d have already been celebrating this significantly-numbered year:

To begin with, the arrival of 5770 means that we’re entering a new decade. I actually remember ten years ago how one friend of mine, noting the arrival of 5760, made a connection to the culture of the 1960s and suggested that the new decade would be similar. I’ll leave that question for the historians to answer while I acknowledge that the Hebrew calendar gives me a few months to get used to the arrival of a new decade on the Gregorian calendar.
