20. I just knew the expessions from life experience.

I have heard Moed tov Moadim l'simcha during Sukot and Passover, growing up in west London, and also from some of my parents' Jewish friends/co-workers.

That said, despite my being of partial Jewish descent myself, I am in no way all that knowledgeable. Both my parents and I are atheists, as is one of my brothers.

My sister converted to Sufi Islam (due to her boyfriend, and she surprisingly stayed with it after they parted ways), and my other brother converted to Anglican Christianity as an early teen. Both of them are very tolerant in their religious outlooks, so I have had very little conflicts with them.

My sister is deep into the mysticism aspects of Islam, especially the works of Rumi. All about love, harmony, peace, balance, letting go of ego, etc. She is absolutely shattered by the war.
