KFAR SABA, ISRAEL - FEBRUARY 23: A woman tacks a dress to an oversized opera singer as workers put the final touches on dozens of large colourful floats to be used next week in Purim carnivals throughout the country, at the Simaney-Derech workshop on February 23, 2010 near Kfar Saba in central Israel. Purim is a festival that commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people of the ancient Persian Empire from the evil vizier Haman's plot to annihilate them, as recorded in the Biblical Book of Esther. It traditionally symbolizes the victory of the Jewish people over anti-Semitic tyranny and is marked by fancy-dress parades and carnivals. (Photo by David Silverman/Getty Images)
