Purim 2021 – A Time To Celebrate

Hey guys!!! I will be answering your assumptions about me in the next post, but today’s topic is…PURIM! Yep, it is that time of year again!

Today is Purim and I’m super excited about it! Well, besides the fact that the boys are making noise makers (to boo out Haman’s name). Noise and I are mortal enemies.

So What IS Purim??

I’m glad you asked! πŸ˜‰

Purim is the Jewish holiday that celebrates the survival of the Jewish people when Haman tried to destroy them. We celebrate Esther and Mordechai. It is a really cool holiday.

What Do We Do On Purim?

Another great question!

It is customary to read the whole book of Esther. Twice. While it’s a short book, my siblings have even shorter attention spans, so we just read it once. πŸ™„

Some other things are…to give to the needy and send gifts of food to friends and have masquerade parties! And, of course, FEASTING! Which leads me to my next point….

What Do We Eat On Purim?

Um. For our family, the main special food we have is Hamantaschen!!! Hamantaschen (try spelling that from memory!) are three cornered cookies that are filled with some kind of stuff. (Typically, jam or lemon poppy seed, but we get very creative! You can see the post I did last year for some ideas!)

Other foods could be cheese filled triangle (also for Haman’s hat), brisket, and, of course, challah! (And drinks such a wine & juice for the kids.)

Purim Music

What celebration is complete without music?! Here are some of my favorite Purim songs that you guys can play while making Hamantaschen!

What are you waiting for? Go out and celebrate! Read the amazing story of Esther! Remember the miracle.

    1. Technically, we aren’t Jewish. But we love the holidays and the whole culture. It’s really cool. Plus, my parents love Hebrew names (hence the fact that me and all of my sibling’s names are Hebrew).
      Thanks so much!

  1. I love Purim because of Esther! My name is Hadassah, the name she was before she was Esther, so Purim means a lot to me. ❀ My dad has Jewish blood in him (so obviously we do too, lol), and though we don't celebrate Purim all that much, I love learning more about it!
    Thanks, Hattush!

      1. Cool! That’s great that you can experience these super-special times of celebration!
        I’ve kept up with a messianic group overseas via newsletter for years, but I’ve never actually attended a meeting at a messianic congregation. It’s so great to read their testimonies of how the Lord is working!

  2. Oh, I can’t believe I didn’t see this until now. *facepalm* (How come that’s how all my comments on your blog posts start? Lol)

    This was a great post! Purim is so much fun. ❀ I really liked being able to celebrate it this year!
