Persian Lag Ba-what?

Failed Messiah points us today to Fox News, that always well-researched news outlet, which has this lovely news item for us. What’s wrong with this?

  1. wha— what the hell is up with that?
    Did they mean Purim? Which I guess is kind of Persian related….

    Very odd.

    I think, as a side note, that I’m going to have to steal your disclaimer to use on my own blog. I like it.

  2. I’m glad you like the disclaimer, Jesse.

    So I read on another blog that they probably meant an actual Iranian holiday called Nowruz. Which has all of one letter in common with Lag Ba’omer.
