Save 50% on Costumes at Ricky's

In time for Purim, Ricky’s is offering 50% on all children’s costumes. Even if you don’t celebrate Purim, it’s an excellent opportunity to stock up on dress-up stuff or Halloween! I’m loving Little Red Riding Hood ($10) and Deluxe Indiana Jones ($20).

Purim, which falls on March 10 this year, is the festive Jewish holiday that celebrates Esther’s bold and feminist actions that saved the Jewish people from extermination by the evil Haman. Children dress up as the key figures in the Book of Esther, disguising their identities just as Esther hid her origins from the Persian King Ahasuerus who loved her and made her his Queen.
