Happy Purim!


I heard the whole Megillah (every word!), had a hamantaschen (well, maybe a few ), and now I'm having a beer (Sleeman Cream Ale).

Happy Purim to all who celebrate!

Happy Purim to you Michael,

hamantaschen, look tasty, even if the name is somewhat misleading.

Cheers,
Carey.

Sounds a bit like the Mardi Gras we celebrated when i lived in New Orleans. Didn't know what the Purim festival was about, so this link helped.....

It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day.”

Jewish recipe site...
Hamantasch is a cookie in Jewish cuisine recognizable for its 3-cornered shape. It is eaten during the Jewish holiday of Purim. Traditional fillings are poppy seeds (Yiddish mon) or prune, but they are made with many different flavors, including date or apricot. For children, parents sometimes make chocolate-filled Hamantaschen.

It's not a particularly orthodox only holiday.

Have a beer and consider that you've celebrated!

They looked good, but never had one. We don't have much of a Jewish population in Amarillo. Guess i could make some myself in memory of Haman’s demise.

I had to laugh at myself.... I have heard of Purim, but for some reason always thought it was a Hindu holiday.... it sounds sorta Hindu-ish, doesn't it?

Anyway, thanks for teaching me something new, and happy Purim to those who celebrate it!
