Last night at sundown, the Jewish holiday of Purim started.
It is by far the best holiday out there. Here's why.
1. The story of Purim is very, very soap opera-y.
2. And a little bit sexy.
3. On Purim, you're basically required to get wasted.
An ancient Jewish text contains this line: "A person is obligated to drink on Purim until he does not know the difference between 'cursed be Haman' and 'blessed be Mordechai.'" OK, yes, there is some debate over what exactly that means, but many Jews take it to mean, "Drink up!"
