Ateres HaShavua: This Week's Issue (.pdf):

"It is the custom of the Skulener Rebbe that by Pesach he wishes everyone a Freilichin Pesach, and by Purim he wishes everyone a Chag Kosher V’Sameach. His reason for this rather than the standard reverse, is because by Pesach we can get caught up in the cleaning, cooking, and all the other preparations: Freilichin Pesach! Don’t forget to enjoy the holiday also. Yet by Purim, some people lose the true meaning of the holiday and tend to distort the important significance behind this Yom Tov which is greater than Yom Kippur. The Rebbe therefore would wish everyone a Chag Kosher V’Sameach, to point out that everyone should enjoy themselves, but in the kosher way the holiday of Purim was meant for."

ASJ, A Freilichin Pirim to you and your family. I am between the first and second meals of Purim and wanted to pop in to see what shalach manos you sent our way.

Thank you for all the wonderful gifts.

I also have the Malbim on Purim for several years now, and like it very much. In addition, I recommend the Breslov Megilat Esther, with the black cover and colorful eyes, nose and mouth mask. It, too, contains sodos and makes great reading. If you like the Breslov Megilat, try their Hagaddah for a very interesting read.

Ah Freilichin Purim to you and your readers:)

BUT, WHERE ARE TZADIKKELE, Lil TZADIKKELE, and TZADEKAS QUEEN ESTHER? I want to see their costumes!!!

That didn't originate there. I heard that from a different, earlier Rebbe.
