Purim - The Jewish Halloween

How could I not know about this holiday? During Purim
(which ends today), people dress up in costume and give out inexpensive treats to their friends. And the best part? "One of the most well-known (and beloved) aspects of the Purim festive meal is that each adult participant is obliged to become so drunk that he or she cannot distinguish between the phrases, 'Cursed be Haman' and 'Blessed be Mordecai'." Sign me up!

Oh, those wacky Jews! :)

I guess all religions need an excuse to party.

Happy Purim! The excellent part is that it's St. Patty's Day, too, so one can't tell if you're drunk because you're Jewish or drunk because you're pretending to be Irish.
