    Is it a good thing to get drunk on Purim if you are under 21. It’s illegal and unsafe but does that matter.


    Just read all the other threads that have discussed this.


    It’s not always illegal, and if one is careful, it is not unsafe.


    I had an older relative a”h who was zoche to attend a Nevorodok yeshiva in Europe. He told me the hanhala there Assered drinking on Purim because it lead to “znus”. Did they not know the laws, or are the situations that override the laws?

    Someone else told me they didn’t drink in Europe because they couldn’t afford it.

    It’s a yom mishta vsimcha. A mishta is wine feast. That’s just what it is. A yom mishta is a day of wine feasting. I think it’s pretty clear what the objective is.
