Christians have Halloween, we’ve got Purim!

On the festival of Purim, we wear costumes to celebrate the miracle of Purim… which once again – saved the Jewish nation from EVIL men.

And no, we don’t knock on people’s doors asking for trick or treat. Instead, we actually exchange Mishloach Manot baskets. Isn’t that a lot nicer?

What’s your favorite part of Purim?

Usually, there are three possible answers to that question:

  1. Send/receive Mishloach Manot baskets
  2. Dressing up in cool Purim costumes
  3. Send/receive Purim baskets while dressing up in cool Purim costumes

(Hmm… it seems there’s only one answer after all.)

Purim is all about celebrating love, friendship, and joy – and that’s exactly the secret of the Mitzvah of Mishloach Manot: when we give gifts – we spread love, create friendships and make the other person happy.

But it’s not just about whether or not you send a Mishloach Manot… what you include in it matters just as much, if not more.
