All Day Purim

Purim is one of the most joyous holidays on the Jewish calendar. It commemorates a time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from extermination. It is customary to hold carnival-like celebrations on Purim, to perform plays and parodies, to give to charity, and to eat and drink to excess. Americans sometimes refer to Purim as the Jewish Mardi Gras. The primary commandment related to Purim is to hear the reading of the book of Esther. It is customary to boo, hiss, stamp feet and rattle noisemakers whenever Haman, the genocidal king in the story, is mentioned in the service. The purpose of this custom is to "blot out the name of Haman."
