Purim on the bus to Beer Sheva


Tomorrow the Purim holiday starts, but today school kids wore their costumes to class.

Suddenly my bus filled up with a high school boy sporting white wings, a devil with red horns, and lots of girls in very short dresses and outlandish costumes.
The Bedouin men and women sitting at the bus stop looked on in amazement and amusement.

Fitting for the occasion, though I can see why it would bring comment from Bedouins.

Purim is the best!

ahhhh gone are the days when every parent wanted their little girl to look like Queen Esther. Would our parents have allowed us to go out in very short dresses and outlandish costumes? hehe

Interesting that the Persian king in the Book of Esther is the same one who invaded Greece (the famous battle of Thermopylae). Nice angel wings :)

Maybe a real Bedouin dress could be considered a costume... I do not see many angels around, not even for our Carnival!

That's a very clever costume:) But thinking of a red-haired angel makes me chuckle. Happy Purim, Denise!

logical that an angle would have to wear his/her backback in front (smile)

A winged boy! Not something one sees everyday, but perhaps for Purim more often.

Purim sounds like such a fun time. I don't remember learning about this back on the mainland.
