Did You Know?
Facts, Figures & Folklore About the Jewish Holiday of Purim

March 02 : 07 days till Purim

Did you know that Purim is one of the most joyous holidays in the Jewish religion? So joyous, in fact, that the rabbis have actually commanded adults to get drunk on the holiday of Purim.

The most festive of Jewish holidays, Purim is 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 begins at sundown on the 09th of March.

We’ll be presenting a new “Did You Know?” fun fact each day as we countdown to Purim! So stop by again tomorrow or for those with no patience you can visit our Purim celebration for our list of Did You Know? Purim facts.

Dr. Seuss’ Birthday

Yes its true, yes its true or
so that it seems,
That today’s a big day,
the kind even in dreams,

For all little girls and all little boys
Will wake up bright and early to read with much joy!
And they’ll read. And they’ll read. And when they’ll get to the parts
were their giggles begin and the laughter, it starts
And they’ll giggle and giggle with laughter for sure!
Oh, the noise! Oh, the noise! Oh, the noise! Noise! Noise! Noise!

(and we know that the Grinch would have hated the noise!)

So a big birthday thanks
for the magic and more
Thanks for that Cat in the Hat
and the rest of the score

We loved all your stories
we loved them galore
Let’s sing! And Let’s sing!
And then sing! Sing! Some more!

That’s about as good as it gets as my rhyming’s quite sad
but lets just give some thanks for the fun we’ve all had
Its a big celebration out here on the tubes
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to youse!

Celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday today by taking part in Read Across America Day  (March 02, 2009) and encouraging the reading of books.
