I'm not sure I see the point. I must have missed it.

What was the significance?

There is no relevance. It talks about ritual animal sacrifices. But (a) animal sacrifices aren't an issue for us Catholics, and (b) it has nothing to do with diet.

As far as diet goes the only passage I know of that mandates eating meat is Exodus 12.

Well, that hardly applies. I think lamb blood on our doors is discouraged, and we aren't Jews in exile anymore, so we're clear.

Although...it does sound fun. What better way to celebrate than to kill an animal and smear its blood on your entrance?

I think I see a new holiday tradition to commercialise! I'll be rich if it catches on.

I'm a vegan, so no cheese for me.

I use a lot of oil and love fruit, if that helps.
