The Month of Increasing Happiness

Purim is one of the most amazing holidays on the Jewish calendar. It is an extremely happy time and it is actually a mtzvah to get very drunk on Purim. If you want to read about Purim then the Aish Site is the place to go.

We are supposed to increase our happiness in the month of Purim. This article, "Let's Do Purim" gives some good insights on increasing joy:

3) Count your blessings
6) Go out of your way to bring someone else joy. You will be amazed how much joy this will bring into your own life.

We have much to be grateful for and we can find happiness even in the turmoil of our times. The starting point is being grateful for life itself.
