Not So Fast

There are a only a couple more hours left of Taanit Esther, the Fast of Esther.  As per usual, this fast day has seemed to go by v e r y  s l o w l y. But as soon as it’s over we’ll be on the verge of all the very exciting Purim celebrations. And when I say Purim celebrations, I mean two things:

1)Hamantaschen

2)Liquor

Luckily, tonight is also St Patrick’s Day, so you can get a head start on that whole liquor thing. Also, would you like to know more about the Jews of Ireland? You’re welcome.
