Helper's Little Santas

You know what’s the back story here, right? The father (pictured pushing the baby carriage) and the mother (walking next to him) had no idea in the world about the cultural significance of the cheap Purim suits they found at the store for their brood (although, you’ll notice, one of the girls insisted on Queen Ester, or Snow White, or just wore her pretty, white dress, shoes and hat).

Because to even contemplate the possibility that this Haredi Jerusalem family knowingly dressed their kids up as little Santa Clause is too culturally complex even for folks like us, with equal footing in Western and Jewish cultures.
