Putting on for Pat’s, Purim
The fellow above, in Times Square, took the “wearing of the green” to the max on St. Patrick’s Day. Meanwhile, Sunday night, “King Haman” and his friend were traveling uptown on the No. 3 train to a Purim party. The holiday of Purim commemorates how the Jews living in the ancient Persian Empire were saved by Esther.
