In 2018/5778, Purim begins the evening of Wednesday, February 28, and ends in the evening of Thursday, March 1.
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?
