Which is the Jewish celebration of the story of Esther. Queen Esther, to refresh your memory, spoke out to stop the slaughter of the Jews in Persia. The Jews fought back and won. Which brings us to the basic summary of most Jewish holidays (I did not make this up…) “They tried to kill us, we won, let’s eat.”
However, today we started our eating with a fun kid’s carnival which started with a great costume parade. There were many games, prizes, facepainting and — da, da, da, daaaaa… Balloon animals with Anna. That’s me. So you have your choice of a dog, or a giraffe (long necked dog) or a mouse (big eared dog) or an elephant (long nosed dog). Sometimes it is your choice, sometimes not. I can make an airplane too. So now you know another of my many talents. I’m available for Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, birthdays, weddings, etc. You get it.
