    Tu B'Av (Hebrew: ט״ו באב‎, lit. 'fifteenth of Av') is a minor Jewish holiday. In modern-day Israel, it is celebrated as a holiday of love (חג האהבה‎ Hag HaAhava), similar to Valentine's Day.[2] It has been said to be a "great day for weddings".

    Modern times

    Tu B'Av marks an informal "high" to counter the "low" of The Three Weeks leading up to Tisha B'Av. Tu B'Av does not have many established religious rituals associated with its celebration. However Tachanun is not said—either at mincha the day before or on the day itself—and a bride and groom traditionally do not fast if their wedding falls on Tu B'Av.[8]

    In modern times, it has become a romantic Jewish holiday, often compared to Valentine's Day, and has been said to be a "great day for weddings, commitment ceremonies, renewal of vows, or proposing". Also, "It is a day for romance, explored through singing, dancing, giving flowers, and studying."

    Because we have found the shidduch system to be better like when asking people what kind of tablecloth their mothers use for Shabbos (Sabbath).

      So, it seems I was right. "Its all deflections form your inadequacy. "
      You are simply incapable of explaining yourself. Whether this is due to intellectual deficiencies or some psychological issue who knows?
      All I know is the result. Which is a big load of NOTHING.

  • But it says why

    The Talmud in Masekhet Taanit says that today, Tu BeAv, the 15thof the month of Av is one of the happiest days of the year. No special customs or celebrations are performed, except for the omission of Tachanun (the confessional prayer).
