Israelis seem to have a new holiday every 2 days, don't they?

While Israelis prepare to celebrate 57 years of independence (on May 12th), I myself am quietly remembering the fact that this day, May 10th 8 years ago, was the first day I came to Israel (and what a lifechanging event that turned out to be). Indeed my first day in Israel was Israel's Independence Day - Yom Ha'atzmaut, with Israeli flags everywhere I looked!

I just thought this was a cute, happy and a different kind of Independence Day photo.

Israel flag's dresses are pretty, white with blue stripes looks very beautiful. I remember having seen once a wedding dress like this picture but long like, well, a wedding dress, at Israpundit I think. I would had liked to save the bookmark.
