Avremi Zippel, the youth and program director for the Chabad Lubavitch of Utah, visited FOX13's studio to talk about the holiday of Tu B'Shat or the new year for trees.

This holiday marks the time the earliest trees bloom in Israel beginning a new fruit bearing cycle.

Zippel explains how people celebrate by eating fruit and making special blessings.
