I accidentally read the Megillah tonight for my shul since last year, I could have sworn, that we read the Megillah right after the fast. Yet, the Rav of the Shul returned from a business trip after the reading and told us that we erred since Purim cannot be celebrated on Fridays, it is נדחה (pushed off) until Sunday.

The question is: Should we repeat the Megillah tomorrow (Friday day) as well? I am compelled to read tomorrow, since the reason for reading during the day and night is because the Jews screamed out when they were in need by day and night (Rashi) - I do not want onlookers to think that they only screamed out during the night.

What do you think?

This question is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy.

This actually makes for an interesting real question, in terms of the groups of people who are supposed to read a few days early, cf Mishna Megillah 1:1. –  Double AA Feb 22 '13 at 4:53
