Time to be funny! Turn things upside down! It’s really Adar this time. I promise.

Okay, so for those who have no idea what the title of today’s post means, I’ll clarify:

Don't you wanna dress up for Purim?

Don’t you wanna dress up for Purim?

The Hebrew month of Adar contains the wacky holiday of Purim. The thing is, when there’s a leap year, there’s an entire extra month of Adar–because if you’re going to have a month that comes twice, it might as well as be the one that’s known as the happiest of the year. But there’s only Purim in the second Adar.

After a month of tolerating a giant “SIKE!” the second Adar of 5774 started yesterday. Jewish kids everywhere are going crazy. Okay, maybe not all Jewish kids, but the Jewish kids in my house. Junk food is suddenly widely available and clowns appear in unexpected places. Costumes have been hunted down. Jokes are flying.

Blog readers, I hereby send you on a mission:

Write something funny.

And just in case you need help being funny, here are two old posts for writers about how to write humor. Here’s one, and here’s the other. Hope the tips help.
