Ok, we know, we know, Halloween isn’t a Jewish holiday. But some of our readers do celebrate this night of sugar and dress up. (This mama is avoiding the holiday for as long as she possibly can.) But I just got sent this photo of our contributor Gabrielle Birkner’s son, Saul, dressed as a piece of sushi.
When asked if she made Saul’s costume (she does live in Brooklyn, the borough of DIY) she explained: “If by that you mean that I made the money to buy it, then yes!” Oh man, I love that girl.
If you’re also celebrating the spook fest, feel free to post photos of your costumed kids to our Facebook page!

After Purim, we had a great idea. Why not have a costume contest? We’d have parents submit photos of their kids in adorable Purim costumes and then we’d choose a winner and post the photo on the blog and send them a prize. Sounds perfect, right?
Well, you try narrowing down what felt like a gazillion cute babies into just one. I mean, really, what were we thinking? How do you decide whether the dinosaur, ladybug, or sock monkey is cutest? THEY’RE ALL CUTE, PEOPLE. We have some adorable baby Kvellers out there and we’re not afraid to say it.
So we finally narrowed it down to our top three, after much deliberation. These kids are so cute they’re practically edible (and since one of them is dressed as a hamantaschen, she kind of is!) Thank you to everyone for participating, and we can’t wait to see what the kids look like next Purim!
And the winners are…
Michal Frumkin, 7 1/2 months old, from Germantown, Maryland
Elijah Rediger, age 2, from Bexley, Ohio
Noah Baumgarten (it was his 1st birthday on Purim!) from Kettering, Ohio
