My thoughts of Yom Kippur

Maybe its wrong of me not to look forward to this dreadful holiday, as I am sure many of you out there as well. But now I feel super relieved. Relieved that is over and do not have to look forward to fasting 25 hours and sitting in shul all day. On the positive side, hoping my sins got atoned, I can now start sinning again. And hope if im still around next yom kippur, I can atone for them again. During yom kippur when I was younger I used to rationalize of how after its over, three days later would be succos and ill be off and its going to legendary. Now that im working everyday its not succos, its not as legendary. Its not like I hate it, I just don’t look forward to it like I used to when I was in Yeshiva. Its just something I havta do.

Another thought that came up, why some shuls don’t have any breaks and sometimes go a complete hour after the fast is over to blow shofar. Are they trying to prove other shuls they are frummer them because they can say the words slower that slow. Or because they can fast an extra hour for absultety no reason. Luckily I was in a normal shul that blew shofar on schedule and had a decent break. Despite the genious black mantenence guy who didn’t know, put the cake and juice out an hour early, so I had to stare at the cake for most of neila and drool. You know I wasn’t that hungry until that happened. Plus I sat right next to the table so made it even more difficult on concetrating on the neila. But like I said earlier, I don’t have to worry about this again till next year. Yee haaw.

NSF,

We had one time a hazzan stretch the neilah like extra 15 mins and most of the people just walked out. If I was in a shul where people waited a whole hour to blow the shofar, I would leave them alone and go break my fast. lol.

You're not alone... seems just about everyone I know (and a large number of bloggers, apparently) have had very underwhelming Yom Kippurs.

And an hour before shofar? Geez. That's nuts. Heck, I'd walk out too.

My shul started shacharis at 8 am and finished mussaf at 5:15. we had a 15 minute break before yizkor which was stupid and we started mincha at 5:45. we flew thru mincha and neila and were finished at about 8. what is the point? dont smoke crack!
