Filed under: Travel — demigod @ 8:41 pm

On wednesday 14th March Purim festival was celebrated here in Israel. Though the festival falls on 14th, you can feel the festive mood of the people here for the entire week. As per the book of Esther, Purim signifies the deliverance of persian jews from the evil Haman. People do exchange sweets and wear masks/fancy dresses to celbrate this joyes day. It’s good to see people everywhere, especially childrens wearing fancy costumes. On this day morning when i went to office, i found this on my table. Yes chocalates distributed by Amdocs for all their employees.
