Purim is a topsy-turvy holiday -- we're supposed to be silly. Things are supposed to be upside-down.
And it's supposed to be fun.
We make hamantaschen...every year.
My heart's not in it. Our first real holiday without Sammy.
But I am going through the motions.
I've ordered Purim costumes.
I've made hamantaschen.
Because the kids demanded it.
How could I say no?
Fake it til you make it, right?
It all feels so topsy-turvy.
Sammy LOVED Purim. He loved making hamantaschen. He loved dressing up in costumes. He loved the carnival.
It all feels more topsy-turvy than ever.
