Purim Holiday

It's Adar in the lunar calendar a month of joy. On the first of the month, some teachers allow the students to play pranks on them, sing songs and spread the good cheer. The Purim holiday is upon us as people are frantically purchasing costumes and nosh before Sunday. While it is quite hectic, I personally enjoy this holiday. It's also a kid-friendly holiday. The excitement has been mounting these past few weeks as the stores put out their Purim displays and Pre-Purim carnivals are held. I love seeing the creative costumes as well as the creative packages that arrive. It's a time when family and friends get to see each other and know that you're thinking about them. It's a time of partying as the young children pop smoke bombs and spray their cans of silly string. It's a time of eating great food and the men get to get drunk. Yep, it's that one time of year when the men are supposed to get drunk. When the men in my family get drunk, they start telling everyone how wonderful they are, and it is a time of great fun. As fun as this holiday is we are also aware of the more significant part of the holiday and exactly what we are celebrating. We are celebrating that time many years ago, when we were saved from that evil Haman and the destruction of our nation. Another particularly exciting event is the horse with the characters Mordechai and Haman. Mordechai is sitting upon the horse and Haman is leading, portraying a scene from the Book of Esther.  The children wear costumes to signify that the Purim miracle was disguised by natural events. I hope to post some pictures soon. Stay tuned for fun stuff coming up.
