i rarely do ‘selective desaturation’ but this one was just asking for it.
three very young ladies preparing their purim costumes in early morning.
it was the same three young ladies that giggled late into the night and the same three young ladies i blame for finding it difficult to keep my eyes open today.
but they’re adorable!
Purim (Hebrew: פורים Pûrîm “lots“, from Akkadian pūru) is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of Haman‘s plot to annihilate all the Jews of the Persian Empire, who had survived the Babylonian captivity, after Persia had conquered Babylonia who in turn had destroyed the First Temple and dispersed the Jewish people; as recorded in the Biblical Book of Esther. It is characterized by public recitation of the Book of Esther, giving mutual gifts of food and drink, giving charity to the poor, and a celebratory meal (Esther 9:22); other customs include drinking wine, wearing of masks and costumes, and public celebration.
