::::: WTF is Purim Anyways? :::::

Purim is the most festive of Jewish holidays, a time of prizes, noisemakers, costumes and treats. The Festival of Purim commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from destruction in the wake of a plot by bad guy Haman (think of a Jafar-like character), a story recorded in the Megillah, the Biblical Book of Esther. Purim is characterized by public recitation of the Megillah, giving mutual gifts of food and drink, giving charity to the poor, and celebratory meals; other customs include drinking lots of wine, wearing masks and costumes, and joyous celebration. 

You don't have to be Jewish to celebrate Purim; it's for everyone!
