Happy Purim 2016 — One Jewish Holiday Where One Can Safely Say ‘Happy’.

by Anura Guruge


“The Banquet of Esther and Ahasuerus” and the story of Purim is told in the Biblical book of Esther.

Given that I am a bit slow on the uptake, despite efforts by a number of good Jews, I have never been able to keep the Jewish holidays straight and always worry that I might use the wrong appellation, in particular ‘happy’, when sending a Jewish person a greeting on a Jewish holidays. In the same I know NOT to wish any thinking Christians ‘Happy Good Friday’ — ‘Happy’, as it relates to Easter, only applicable on Sunday. But wish Purim, I gather, though I could still be wrong, that the correct and appropriate greeting is indeed Happy Purim. So Happy Purim.
