Our secular calendar includes a day - April 1 - that is typically devoted to foolishness and trickery. As Jews, however, we celebrate the ridiculous for a full month!
That, of course, would be Adar - the month that brings the festive post-biblical holiday of Purim, celebrating our people's delivery from an evil Persian courtier's extermination plot. Purim plays, Purim carnivals, costumery, silliness, and maybe a bit to drink... it's all part of the fun. (They tried to kill us, they failed, let's eat!)
Even though Purim is over, there's still two weeks of Adar silliness left... and we can begin our preparations for Pesach, the season of our liberation, the festival that commemorates the singular event that forged our identity as a Jewish nation.
