Part of me has not wanted to face that Purim is less than three weeks away. I am sad that with Coronavirus still around, we won’t be having a seuda with others and megillah readings may look quite different than ever before. Even my kids’ school festivities are being truncated. But, as we have faced this whole year of different, there are certain traditions and mitzvahs we still CAN do.
To that end, I have been hard at work planning our shaloch manos and costumes, just maybe in a simpler way than other years. We are not going to do homemade food for our personal shaloch manos, just in case that makes anyone uncomfortable. I may not spend as much time on this year’s costumes, either, without fun school events to show them off.
As usual, though, I am glad to share all my tips and tricks to get ready for the holiday as easily as possible. This post pulls together resources from across my blog.
