Happy Purim!

Martha in Jerusalem has decorated her Lundby Stockholm for Purim. She sent me these photos of her Lundby family in colorful costumes celebrating under signs reading "Purim Sameach" (Happy Purim).

On the table are a Megillah scroll (Book of Esther), plates of hamantashen (filled pastries in the shape of Haman's three-pointed hat or triangular ears), and a brass gragger, or noisemaker used to drown out the name of wicked Haman.

Thank you for sharing, Martha. A happy Purim to one and all!
