Purim is a holiday that Israelis of all ages and levels of religious observance can and do enjoy. The holiday celebrations extend from before the holiday itself, well into the weekend where parties will continue to rage for those waiting for the pending workweek to end.

Children across the country arrived to school on Wednesday - the night when the holiday began - and Thursday donning technicolor costumes both of tradition holiday characters like Queen Esther and the evil Persian Haman , and more modern characters that would not seem out of place in a Halloween parade in the United States.
