I love Purim, Except the carnival at my temple is kindof lame. I paint kids faces and make cotton candy and they give away goldfish and then there are hyper little kids all over the place for the rest of the day.
I heard in Israel it's pretty much amazing though. Kindof like Halloween here...which sadly I can't do much anymore cause the whole 'trick or treating' thing kindof gets old once I get past 16. :/
Anyway, looks like fun. I really want to live in Israel when I get older. I'm going this sumer :]
umm...I think its in like one of the books, not sure which one. But it's basicly about standing up to to antisemitism. And they just say "God was there supporting everyone", it's more or less an excuse to have fun.
