Mishenichnas Adar/When Adar Begins

משנכנס אדר
מרבין בשמחה
When Adar* begins
everyone's joy increases.
(Talmud Bavli Ta'anit 29a)

*Adar is the month on the Jewish calendar containing Purim, a holiday that celebrates the events of the book of Esther and during which we wear costumes and do other joy-filled things.
