Here is a quote from a blog I stumbled across and will now forever forget. This is how secular Jews see Purim :
This weekend is Purim, the most light-hearted of Jewish holidays, when we are commanded to drink so much that we can’t tell Haman (villain) from Mordechai (hero). It’s also the most kid-friendly holiday, with costumes and carnivals galore.
Keep in mind that on Purim Jews are instructed to get so drunk they can’t see straight. Following suit, ‘Christians’ do the same thing with Mardi Gras.
Apparently costumes an party supply businesses
are applying Halloween marketing techniques
to those wishing to celebrate Purim in a more secular manner.
Aww, yours are pretty sweet too,bro!
