Ho, Ho, Ho!

OK… OK… You can stop laughing now. This is serious business. You will be graded and it will count toward your final grade.

Pop Quiz:

Which of the following answers best explains the above picture?

A) It never happened. The picture was photo-shopped.

B) A Meah Shearim resident with a great sense of humor knew exactly what he was doing. And he won the prize for best children’s costume at the annual Purim costume competition sponsored by R’ Areleh’s Chasidim.

C) Said resident did not have a clue about the significance of those costumes but thought his kids looked really cute in them.

I believe the correct answer is C. If I am right than it shows that the outside world is going to filter into the most sheltered of societies. What’s to stop the next sheltered resident from bringing a Christmas tree into his home on Shavuos?

Update: This picture was sent by my cousin Leon in Australia. But I just noticed that Dovbear had it first - posted it on Friday. Just wanted to make note of that.
