In 2017, Purim begins the evening of Saturday, March 11, and ends in the evening of Sunday, March 12.
Purim is arguably the most fun Jewish holiday! It is actually a mitzvah to gorge and get drunk on this day. It's also a mitzvah to give food to your friends and charity to the poor. Traditionally we dress in costume and eat hat-shaped cookies. What's not to like about Purim?
