I’m consolidating my Purim entries on to one Thing here. 7 years ago
I volunteered to be Haman at a Purimschpiel. Rehearsal is Thursday after next.
Wednesday is the planning meeting for the party. 7 years ago
One of the best Purim parties I went to, we all dressed as our inner Haman – the side of ourselves that we were ashamed of.
One fellow came in drag – said he couldn’t deal with his feminine side. Another woman, who is a nurse, and is very sensible and plain in how she dresses and communicates, came in teased hair, make-up and a tarty dress. I wore things that demonstrated my superiority over others: political buttons to show I was more politically correct; a mortarboard on my head to show I was better educated, and so forth.
It was an interesting party. 7 years ago
The last few years it seems that Purim has lost part of its magic. After high school, most people don’t get dressed anymore, it’s really sad. I think that people feel more comfortable wearing costumes in a party. We had one 2 or 3 years ago and it was great, so if I don’t find one this year, I’ll organize one. 7 years ago
