Why do we wear costumes on Purim?
It could be because of the theme of hiding in Megillat Esther (the Book of Esther). How many examples of hiding can you find in Esther? Feel free to be creative with your answers. My husband named quite a few.
Happy Shushan Purim. Shushan Purim is the day after Purim, and it is celebrated in cities that had a wall at the time of Joshua. That is, a long, long, long, long time ago. Today that means in the city of Jerusalem, with Hebron and Tiberias and others as possibly walled during the time of Joshua (so they read double megillah in those cities). One such double Purim place (with a famous blogger) is Shiloh.
