Purim is Sunday, March 16, 2014 (and St. Patty's is Monday, March 17th, prompting some of us to call this year's holiday Pour'em)
Purim is Judaism's most joyous holiday. It is actually a mitzvah (good deed) to feast and get drunk on this day. It's also a mitzvah to give food to your friends and charity to the poor. It's traditional to dress in costume and eat hat-shaped cookies. What's not to like about Purim?
He says, "How about having to listen to the whole megillah...twice?"
