My friend did something very clever. Instead of hamantashen, she sent applesauce and fresh made potato latkes, l’kovod Chanukah!!!! V’nahapoch huMarch 11, 2009 12:37 pm at 12:37 pm #640697dunnoMember
I saw oompah loompahs from charlie and the chocolate factory!! It was really cute!March 11, 2009 4:01 pm at 4:01 pm #640698YW Moderator-72Participant
We received a very creative shalach manos.
the base was a yellow flower shaped candy bowl.
inside was a small round cake with yellow frosting and red and orange licorice sticking out of the sides like sun beams. the cake was propped up on its by the detachable stand of the candy dish.
The rest of the package was filled with only yellow packages of assorted candies and chips and a juice box and a little foam smiley face sun
in front of the cake was a magnet with the brocha for Bircas haChammah.March 12, 2009 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm #640699charlie brownMember
I like that latke with apple sauce idea! I gotta remember it for next year.March 12, 2009 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #640700
I wore myself… was the biggest hit in brooklyn!March 12, 2009 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #640701mazal77Participant
Okay, here’s one costume that I thought was creative and funny. The Kid wore an oversized sweatshirt, in the hood, was placed a wig head. They poked holes in the middle of the sweatshirt, so he could see out of it. He looked like an alien and was really tall.
Near Moisha’s supermarket, on East 4th street, you will see an effigy of Haman hanging off a lampost. I just saw it today, and I thought that was hysterical!!March 12, 2009 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #640702

areivim, i did not get near the car the entire purim (i told you i’m not allowed to drive yet – i promised my parents.)
and no limp and yeah, probably a smirk 😉
was the guy drinking? what was he wearing? (other than the white borsalino)March 12, 2009 9:30 pm at 9:30 pm #640711anonymisssParticipant
areivim, I think you forgot the freckles. (moish, I know you don’t have freckles, just had to say that.)
~a~March 12, 2009 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #640712
wow charlie – that’s a variation that never crossed my mind! ha well, my dad is actually clean shaven so the red beard wouldn’t work. plus my dad doesn’t ever tell me what to do.
squeak, NO AIRCAST!
and anonymisss, NO FRECKLES! that’s areivim you’re describing!
ames, of course i wore the hat. my dad got the biggest kick out of it. and believe it or not, my brother (mr. perfect child) was dying to wear it to his party at yeshiva, but i didn’t let 😉March 12, 2009 9:51 pm at 9:51 pm #640713mazal77Participant
Ames, becareful of what you wish for.
Charlie & Squeak, very funny!! ROTFL!! Sorry Moish, it really was funny.March 12, 2009 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #640714anonymisssParticipant
You know what’s funny, moish? I don’t know how old your brother is (he is younger than you, right?) but I have a sister who’s a little less than two years older than me who was always Mrs. Perfect Child. I see where you’re coming from about not letting him where it. I can definitely understand. (Of course, a really nice guy would’ve….)

hey funny my last one didn’t go through… it might have even made anonymisss smile…March 13, 2009 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #640717SJSinNYCMember
Moish, I may not live in Brooklyn, but that doesnt mean I wasn’t visiting for Purim 😉March 13, 2009 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #640718
