We need more holidays in the US

Jewish people seem to have holidays all the time. It doesn't mean they get the day off work, but it is a reason to celebrate and party. Right now they are celebrating Purim, which is a holiday where everybody gets dressed up in masks and costumes and has parties. The customer I'm visiting is having a Purim party tomorrow night where they've rented out a space and hired entertainers and all that. I'm invited and of course I'm going.... in the interest of maintaining good relationships with the customers, of course. There are 2 problems. First, I don't speak hebrew and that is what all the entertainment will be in. Second, I don't have a costume. If I'd known this was going on I could have brought a sweet costume with me from the states, but I didn't. Maybe I should have cracked that Frommer's Israel guide before I got on the plane. Anyway, now I've gotta go to the mall and pick something out so I can blend in at the party. Until I open my mouth to speak, that is.
