I’m kind of crushed. Every year I make homemade hammentashen for Purim, but I’m just too busy this year to do it. It’s actually become a tradition that my sister and I get together and make dozens of yummy poppy seed filled goodness. I guess I’ll have to make do with some store bought ones this year.
Of course if I’m too busy for baking, I’m also too busy for a proper Purim party. Again — this is very distressing. I throw a killer Purim-schpiel. It’s kind of amazing that I can throw a party where I read the bible to people and they have to act it out — and people are still talking about it a year or two later. People have actually asked me when Purim is, because they can’t wait for the party. People who have never been have asked how they can get an invite.
I think next year, I’m just going to have to clear my schedule better for Purim. Right now — I could use the emotional release that Purim provides.
Here’s a link to one of my favorite Purim Web moments of 2006.
