Those who enter Adar Merbin are happy:

the Purim celebrations began today (Sunday) in the schools and kindergartens.

The holiday is usually characterized by winter weather, but this time the students who came in costumes were treated to a nice and pleasant morning.

The holiday of Purim itself will begin on Tuesday throughout the country, and on Wednesday in Jerusalem.

The students arrived at the educational institutions with a variety of unique and joyful costumes.

6-year-old Daria Yalon, who studies in the first grade at the "Sparrow" school in Mebasret Zion, dressed up as a cheetah and helped her mother Laura look for her two-and-a-half-year-old little brother Omar for Sami the firefighter.

Daria said after warmly hugging her brother: "I dressed up as a cheetah because they are very fast and beautiful."

The two unique costumes were sewn for them by Michal's mother, who spends every year on Purim in creative costumes.

Or and Eden said: "It was fun and special to make our costumes with mom."

In addition to the custom of dressing up, during the holiday of Purim there are four mitzvahs: reading the Megillah in the evening and the next morning, giving gifts to the priests, giving food to each other and having a Purim feast.
