The holiday of Purim celebrates the victory of the Jewish people over the evil Haman. On the day preceding Purim there is a fast called “The Fast Of Esther”. On Purim itself, the Megillah (Book Of Esther) is read twice, once at night and once during the day. Jews celebrate Purim by giving charity, sending Shalach Manot (gifts of prepared food) and holding a festive meal.

We love this oldie but goodie via 2011! The Maccabeats – Purim Song (Thank you Kosher on a Budget for sparking this memory!)

Celebrating Purim – An overview

The holiday of Purim is celebrated on the 14th of Adar (February-March). It commemorates the foiling of a plot by a Persian minister (Haman) to kill all the Jews in Persia. Purim is observed by Jews around the world. Characterized by feasting and merriment, Purim is typically celebrated in the company of family and friends in a synagogue. Continue Reading →

Cute Costumes for Teenage Girls

Teen Costumes ! Looking for the perfect costume? A fashionable teen costume for Halloween, plays, parties or other events?  There are so many costumes from which to choose, Party Idea Pros is highlighting just a few of our favorites.

Most teenage girls we know travel in packs and love coordinating their costumes.  One year all the high school girls dressed as storybook characters.  Another year they all dressed in neon.  Not sure yet what this year will bring … crayons, candy, goth, witches, goddesses, sesame street, superheroes?   Whatever they choose, I have no doubt the teen costumes will be too short and too sexy for their parents' taste!

Click on the links or pictures for the teen costume for details but remember, the photos below just give you the overall look. Quite often you can choose from a variety of options ranging from almost dowdy to quite sexy, so be sure to click on the “see more” links option when you visit the costume site.  Many of these costumes are specially sized just for a teen but don't worry if they are not.  Most of the x-small or small adult costumes will fit just fine.   If they are cut a bit too low for your taste,  add a tank top underneath.  If they are too short … that's why leggings were invented.  🙂

Ides of March Party
Veni. Vidi. Vici. (Ides of March Party)

I Came           I Saw          I Conquered

March 15th.

What is the Ides of March?

courtesy of Jennifer Vernon, for National Geographic News, March 12, 2004

Julius Caesar's bloody assassination on March 15, 44 B.C., forever marked March 15, or the Ides of March, as a day of infamy. It has fascinated scholars and writers ever since. For ancient Romans living before that event, however, an ides was merely one of several common calendar terms used to mark monthly lunar events. The ides simply marked the appearance of the full moon.

But the Ides of March assumed a whole new identity after the events of 44 B.C. The phrase came to represent a specific day of abrupt change that set off a ripple of repercussions throughout Roman society and beyond. Click here for the rest of the article

Today, thanks to the William Shakespeare‘s play Julius Caesar, the soothsayer's warning to Julius Caesar, “Beware the Ides of March,” has forever imbued that date with a sense of foreboding.  But here at Party Idea Pros we say the ides of March is just another excuse to party, especially for those interested in ancient Roman history, Shakespeare, or anything toga.   Pick and chose from a wide range of ideas.  This theme can go as elegant or as bawdy as you desire.
