According to the Jewish calendar, a second month of Adar is added in a leap year. While Purim is usually celebrated in Adar, during a leap year it is postponed until the second Adar, and we mark Purim Katan—“the small Purim”—in the first month.

Origin: Judaism   While weddings are forbidden during biblically mandated days of rest (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Passover, and Shavuot), as well as during mourning periods like the Fast of the Seventeenth of Tammuz, it's opportune to hold a wedding when the calendar transitions into more joyful times. Enter the months of Kislev (falling around November and December), when Hanukkah is celebrated, and Adar (usually February), when the holiday of Purim is celebrated.
