Today…is a very special day. It’s Einstein’s birthday! HOORAY! (Haha! What?) I’m no physicist so I’m not particularly psyched about it. But I feel like bragging a bit so in honor of his birthday, I’ll leave this riddle here and you guys can try your luck. No cheating ok? I was able to solve it already, btw. NBD. ;)
It is also around this time when Jews celebrate the feast of Purim and the Hindus celebrate the festival of Holi, which is basically a color run ending in a bonfire party.
The feast of Purim, on the other hand, is a slightly more solemn occasion. it celebrates the Persian jews deliverance from a guy named Haman’s plot, which was to annihilate them. Fortunately, love saved the day when the king’s new wife, who coincidentally was a Jew and whom he loved very much, pleaded with him to retract his orders. In the end, Haman was executed and everyone lived happily ever after. <3
