Purim is indeed a fun holiday and perhaps the most festive of all Jewish holidays. The Festival of Purim commemorates a victory over oppression as recounted in Megillat Esther. This Megillah is the scroll which tells the story of Esther--the Jewish girl who became queen to King Ahasuerus and then saved the Jews--her uncle Mordechai and wicked Haman, an advisor to the king who plotted to kill all the Jews of Shushan. Children and adults dress in costume and retell the story, making noise whenever Haman's name is mentioned. This song captures the festive spirit of the holiday; students enjoy the excitement that's part of each refrain.
