Woo hoo, yippee, hip-hip hooray--this year, we didn't miss a single day!

Copied from the Orthodox Union's daily e-mail:

"Ha-yom tisha v'arbaim yom, sheheim shiv-a shavuot la-omer. Today is forty-nine days, which makes seven weeks of the Omer."

Speaking of Sefirat HaOmer, check out Drew Kaplan's 31 May 2006 post, "Counting of the Omer: 49 or 50 Days?"

Chag saméach, happy holiday, one and all. Enjoy your Shavuot, both the learning and the dairy-goodies parts.

Update: Speaking of "woo hoo," apparently, the Punster and I are not the only bloggers who were kept counting by the OU's e-mails. The protests of some fervently Orthodox Jews to the contrary notwithstanding, the Internet is a tool that, while it can be used for evil, can also be used for good. In the case of the Orthodox Union's website, and many other Jewish websites, the Internet doesn't destroy Jewish observance, it enhances it.

Thanks! May all of us be "zocheh" (have the merit) to complete the entire count next year, too!
