Some folks think that Halloween is the only time that costumes and wild decorations get to climb out of the wondrous wardrobe. Well, for those of you who need to get in the know, we'd like to introduce you to a wonderful time of year known as Purim! This is a classic story that has been shared for generations and originated in the Book of Esther, a lovely Jewish woman who finds herself betrothed to Xerxes, the king of Persia. Now, if the names Esther and Xerxes weren't fun enough, consider the story that needed to be told when the newly minted Queen of Susa had to keep her faith a secret! Things get worse when a wicked guy seeking a few more ounces of political power decided to reveal the truth in order to banish Esther and her father Mordecai from the realm! What was a gal to do? Well, it turns out that sometimes honesty is the best policy! Revealing the truth on her own earned her the trust and admiration from the King... and, boy, did Xerxes have a few lessons to teach the evildoers in Persia!
So, what happened next? Any good liberation deserves one heck of a party! Purim is the celebration of the Jewish liberation and features some of the best food, amazing music, and the ultimate in costume couture that you can find in February and March: the Jewish Carnivale! Clearly, we're fully here for anything that brings some FUN to the world and Purim is one of our favorites!
