Sunday, Monday… Happy Days: A Trivia Contest For All

by Carrie Bornstein

Today is (and yesterday was, too) Rosh Chodesh Adar – the first days of the month of Adar.  Adar: the month on the Hebrew calendar that brings us Purim, which I take very, very seriously.  When Adar comes we are meant to increase our joy – a command for happiness!

In case two feet of snow doesn’t make you giddy, we’re offering a little boost, in the form of a trivia contest.  Submit your entry in these two weeks leading up to Purim, and you could win one of the fabulous prizes below.

Most (but not all!) answers can be found somewhere on our website or this blog. Submit your entry (make sure to also follow the specific directions for #10) via email to with the subject line “Adar Trivia.” Each correct answer will earn you one point; the entry with the most points wins. Ties will be broken in a random drawing. Contest ends at 11:59pm, Thursday, February 21.  Good luck!

  2. The cool thing about a plastic poker card it is necessary nice
    feel and enjoy, is it cannot end up marked, crimped, or collapsed.
    However, maybe that is why they are commentators and not players.
    I have seen Aces cracked more times than I can remember
    by another reckless player because the player with the Aces threw caution to the wind and raised all-in against 4
    other players who have already called a big raise and are
    in the hand very heavily.

  3. According to the Cirrus Owners and Pilots Association (COPA), there have been 36 known CAPS activations
    as of July 24, 2012. A standard first offense DUI offender should expect to pay between 3 and
    5 times as much per month for their SR22 insurance
    as they were paying on their regular auto insurance rates.

    Even the companies in Los Angeles, who do insure high danger drivers,
    use diverse formulas to calculate DUI insurance rates.
