Today is Purim!

00-42662And, pray tell, what is Purim?  It is a fun holiday when the Jewish people remember how Queen Esther went boldly to her husband the king to tell him how one of the court officials, Haman, was plotting against the Jews to kill them.  The king didn’t like the idea, and stopped Haman. (For the whole story, read the book of Esther.)  If you are Jewish, you already know and love this holiday. There are games and feasting, and the story of Esther is read.  When Haman’s name is read, everyone uses noisemakers to drown out his name.  Children dress up like different characters in the story. “Top Requested Jewish Holiday Songs” includes five Purim songs, “Haman, a Wicked Man”, and “Chag Purim” among them.  There are eight songs for Chanukah, and six songs for Passover.
