If it was some yucky, boring holiday, great. (actually, I can't think of any yucky, boring holidays, except maybe Flag Day) But Purim is way fun. If you've never been to a Purim Seudah (festive meal), you should find one! There's lots of eating and drinking and merriment.
However, since my other option is to wait until the end of March, I'd rather get it over with sooner than later. Well, at least the line between Haman and Mordechai will most definitely be blurred while under a general anesthetic!
