Coming up later this week is the Jewish holiday of Purim.
Purim is the most festive of Jewish holidays, a time of prizes, noisemakers, costumes, and treats. The Festival of Purim commemorates a major victory over oppression and is recounted in the Megillah, the scroll of the story of Esther. Purim takes place on the fourteenth and fifteenth days of Adar, the twelfth month of the Jewish calendar. This year (2007) Purim begins at sundown on the 03rd of March.
