Happy Purim Joah


Today is Purim. A Jewish holiday when we celebrate defeating Haman's plot, an evil guy, who was trying to kill the Jews in ancient times. A summary of this holiday is: we read the story from the Book of Esther, we rejoice with a Purim party, and now we eat Hamantaschen - a three cornered cookie filled with apricot or prune. My favorite part of any holiday is the eating. Naturally, if anyone wants to learn more about Purim, they can read about the holiday at Wikipedia for starters.

Stay tuned.

P.S. Joah is my grandson.

I've heard about Purim and Hamantaschen through other blogs. I like how blogging brings people together. Happy Purim.
