Esther, a young beautiful woman who kept secret that she was Jewish, married King Ahasuerus. Esther would not bow to Haman, an advisor to the king. To get revenge, Haman persuaded the king to exterminate all of the Jews because they did not follow the kingdom's laws. After a few days later, Esther revealed her true Heritage to the king. The genocide stopped and Haman was hung.
Purim celebrates when the Jews were saved from extermination. This holiday includes reading the Book of Esther, drinking, donating, carnivals, plays, and beauty contests. It is a joyfully day.
