Mexican Purim

This year I tried something new. Mexican Purim.

Purim is a Jewish holiday that seems like a cross between St. Patrick's Day & Halloween.

Since I'm not Jewish I've never celebrated Purim.

Now let's get to the Mexican part:

This is a synagogue not too far from my house. They gimmick up Purim every year. This year it's Mexican!

Take a look at that shot above. You can probably spot someone in a Halloween costume. If not, take my word, they were there.

They also had a mariachi band!

They gave out this book at the door:

This is the story of Esther. I showed it to the mariachi band and said "See! Esther!" they responded "Ah! Siesta!" and they fell asleep.

The whole Magilla.

I think this is sideways, but I am not sure. It's either a foreign language or Space Invaders.

Fun. I sat there and drank some fruity boozy cocktail. Part of the Purim celebration involves drinking... the fun part.

They had a Mexican buffet, but I skipped it and went to get the new Doritos Taco from Taco Bell!

Oy vey! Thats Mexican!
