    For those of you who aren’t familiar with this holiday, Purim (also known as the Feast of Lots) is the most joyful Jewish holiday! It is a true celebration which includes some of the best traditions - dressing up in costumes (much like Halloween); sending a Purim basket with delicious food (preferably homemade) to your friends and family (AKA: Mishloach Manot); participating in a Purim feast and drinking lots of wine.

    Hamantaschen is the traditional Purim cookie. It is a very delicious three-cornered pastry bursting with poppy seeds (my personal favorite) or another sweet filling.
