Yom Kippur

It went fine. Not perfectly because of my cold, but it went fine. I only got dizzy at the end of Neilah, the final service, and that passed. Yom Kippur is always a much easier fast than Tisha B'Av, the other 25 hour one. It's as much the spirit of the day, I think as the time of year - Tb"a is in the middle of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, so it's hot, usually humid *and* it doesn't end until past 9PM. Y"K is in early/mid Fall - cool, crisp and generally ending no later than 7:30.
