It's Purim!

Normally, I wouldn't post on a Festival, but Anna made a comment yesterday that Purim seemed to resemble - or, better to say that Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday seemed to resemble Purim. I got to thinking...and counting...

Purim is 5 weeks/35 days before Passover. Fat Tuesday is 40 days (imperfect, not a full 6 weeks, but very very close) before Easter.....seems to be a link there.....not a direct one, on the surface, but if you dig deeper, yeah. Looks like Mardi Gras is a contamination of Purim.

Interesting....I knew that Easter was a contamination of Passover, and Christmess a contamination of Hanukkah, but I'd never sat down and compared Purim before.

Everybody is out launching rockets (again - we started this last night. After almost burying a rocket in my roof, we quit for the night. It's too cold for ME to be out there - my wrist is aching - but they're out having fun. :giggle:), then they'll come inside and build more. Fun times!
