snack time

After Maariv tonight the shteible put out some food: cake, cookies, herring, OJ, even some sctoch. I've never seen this before. It isn't done in proper shuls. The question is why?

I asked around and the boys said this was a common practice. They all grew up in shteibles, and they all saw it at the end of every fast. What do you think this says about the shtiebles? Positive? (so heimish, so friendly) or negative? (they make their wives wait, and dont have the dicipline to wait until their home)
