Purim Time!

Dry Bones cartoon: Purim, Holidays, Jewish Culture, Halloween, News, Costumes,
Next week we will be celebrating Purim and the country seems ready for our annual "Spring Break" of fun. Folks are hoping to see Jerusalem costumed in a coating of white snow. Driving rains and melting snow in the north are pouring into our water supply, the Sea of Galilee. The front pages of our local newspapers feature colorful photos of floats being built for the coming Purim parades.

Today's cartoon explains this longing for Purim fun.

BTW, Purim day this year is March 8th, which I hasten to point out is also "International Women's Day"'and my Birthday.
