    Chag Sameach, Happy Purim!

    Chag Sameach - Hebrew for "Joyous festival", used for most Jewish festivals.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holiday_greetings

    Tomorrow the 13th of Adar 5768 on the Jewish Calender is Ta'anit Esther (The Fast of Esther) immediately after that on the 14th of Adar 5768 is Purim.

    What is Purim?

    Purim is one of the most joyous and fun holidays on the Jewish calendar. It commemorates a time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from extermination. [more from Judaism 101...]

    This has always puzzled me: Why does my public school get off for Good Friday, but we don't even get a half day for Purim?

    Anyways, Chag Sameakh!

    Thought people might find that amusing.

    That's pretty funny, somewhere I heard a similar story but my memory fails me as to where.

    Chag Sameach!

    Brave woman, that Esther. We need more people in the world like her. She is truly worthy of being remembered.
