Happy Rosh Chodesh Adar - when we enter Adar we increase in simcha - joy and happiness. And simcha breaks all boundaries. A short story.

A great chossid once told a story to the chassidim that late one night, while he was learning, all of a sudden he felt a presence of another person sitting right next to him. The chosid became anxious, extinguished the candle that he was learning by and went straight to bed. "Why did you do that?" the chassidim asked. "Maybe it was "Eliyahu Hanovi." "It was not, answered Reb Shlomo. "Eliyahu Hanovi is always happy and this person was full of sadness. So I knew that he came from the side of evil (sitra ahra)."
