I Have a Purim Costume Idea for You

Shalom Yeladim,
Mah Nishma? What’s new? Have you decided what to get dressed up as, for Purim? I thought about it a lot while I was traveling around the United States the past three weeks and I came up with a great idea. Let’s exchange identities. I’ll get dressed up as an American kid and you get dressed up as Zvuvi – Israel’s favorite fly. I already bought a baseball cap, a cool T-shirt and…you won’t believe this…I also bought a skateboard. I’ve learned how to do a frontside, a backside and a heelflip. I’m going to use these moves to glide my way to Holon on Purim day. Holon is a city right outside Tel Aviv and it’s a great place for kids. It has a Children’s Museum, a Mediatech and annual festivals, like the Yeme Zemer – Days of Singing. Best of all, every Purim it hosts a giant Purim parade called the 'ADLOYADA'. This special pageant is like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in New York. It has floats, jugglers, bands, dancing…and, well, you name it and it’s there. I took some pictures last year so you can see what I’m talking about. Come to think of it, maybe I should suggest that they have a Zvuvi float. What do you think? And what do you think about getting dressed up as me for Purim? Carefully look at my picture so you can figure out how to make a Zvuvi costume. If you do get dressed up as me, please send me a photo. I’ll be sure to post it on my next blog.
Can’t wait to hear from you.
