Tu B'Shvat, the "New Year of the Trees", is the Jewish version of Arbor Day and marks the emergence of spring in Israel. Some hold a "Tu B'Shvat seder" meal similar to a Passover seder to celebrate, while others plant trees, often in honor or memory of loved ones. Fruit and nuts are traditionally eaten, especially the seven species associated with Israel: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. Almonds and carob are also popular.
