A thought for Tu B'AV: R'SBG (taanit 30b) designates the two most yamim tovim (holidays) Yom Kippur and Tu B'av. While the gemara lists a number of events which occurred on Tu B'av, I've always been partial to Yom Tvar Hamaagal (the day they stopped cutting wood for the wood pile). Initially I favored it as a paradigm for priority juggling (going back to Torah learning when your job is done), but it occurred to me that the pairing with Yom Kippur is exquisite - Yom Kippur being representative of the short spurt/high profile avodat Hashem while Tu B'av represents the ongoing low profile diligent avodah of daily life. We need both!
