Did you have a fun Purim?

Purim is a fun holiday, especially with kids. My rabbi reminds us that it's also a holiday for adults. After all, it's not the kids who are supposed to drink until they can't tell Haman(boo) from Mordecai! I have to admit, I don't like noise and chaos, so I skipped the megillah reading this year. I tend to help out with making a minyan on weekday holidays, so I do my share of supporting the ritual aspect of my congregation.

Did you attend a megillah reading? Did you use any imaginative noise-makers? Did you or your kids dress in costume? Did you make hamentaschen or try a new recipe?

With Purim behind us, Passover is not far behind!
