The common good, or the general welfare, ear plugs and upcoming noisy holidays each merit mention now, since it will soon be Erev Purim, or the night before the noisiest holiday on the Jewish calendar, aka the Jewish Halloween, but not like the Day of the Dead. More like the costume party of the year, with noise-makers.
Ok, Purim schpiels, the Book of Esther, sometimes complete with macrame tree upon which to impale an image of Haman, twice, if you happen to be the one reading Chapter 7, more kids running amok in costumes, and all of this in a non-Rated R format, at least for the night of Purim. The morning Megillah reading is more staid, less noisy, and easier to hear the laugh when the reader impales Haman. Yes, that was a relief.
Did I mention that society, and ear plugs, must become more fully inclusive for all of us?
1.) Search for two different sources of ear plugs.
2.) Share them with us in the comments, here, please.
3.) Share your thoughts on how researching on your own about the holiday of Purim, and the Book of Esther, might help, or hinder, inclusive thinking,
4.) Write a book, blog post or tweet that uses a kid-friendly costume party, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. If you write a book, once published, please consider donating to your local public library.
