Is this the day where we worship the stick or the stone?  Or is it that gnarly old tree over there?  Or maybe that cow with the weird birthmark?

Jews have some of the best holidays. They also have some of the weirdest, most miserable sounding holidays. My wifes old boss was an Orthodox Jew and every year he had to go live in a tent or something in his backyard for like a week. WTF is the point of that?

It's the holiday where we're supposed to remember that the Jews foiled a Persian plot to kill them, but we're supposed to forget that when given the opportunity via a blank edict by the Persian king, the Jews opted to kill nearly 100,000 Persians suspected of anti-Jewish sentiment or intentions.

 Is there an LGBT chapter represented in this Purim year?
Why should St. Paddy get all the fun?

It's kind of a combination of seeing how lucky we are to have homes and seeing how far we've come since then.
And since it's a harvest festival, there's an element of being closer to nature. Honestly, Passover is a way bigger, more complicated pain in the ass.

Thanks for reminding us that to some people when jews strike back at people who are trying to kill them, it is wrong.

I went to my 1st Purim service last night. :) I attended my 1st Erev Shabat service back in December, and went to a 2nd one last week. And a couple weekends ago, I went to my 1st Bar Mitzvah. I am also in the middle of learning Hebrew...as an actual language and not just liturgically.

Pointing out how farked up that is gets no argument from me.
It just rubs me wrong when you take a fairly benign (in the context of religion) story about killing people that were trying to kill you and try to demonize people with it.

If you think that killing 100,000 people is 'fairly benign in the context of religion', then I'm not sure what that says about you.

I don't know a lot about any of their holidays. I just know what my wife talked about. Something about him having to be home before dark, Not being able to so much as turn on a light switch on certain days ( I think it was friday), and they had two of everything. Two kitchens, at least two sets of dishes, silverware etc. That whole religion sounds like a huge pain in the ass and also expensive.
