A party store appreciates holidays across the spectrum. Whether it is New Year’s Eve or Purim, a party supply store is your first place to visit for everything you need to prepare. Soon Purim will be celebrated across the globe by our Jewish friends and neighbors. Purim is celebrated with costumes, feasting, and the retelling of the story of Queen Esther and her cousin Mordecai’s attempts to save the Jewish people from the Persian King Haman who was set to persecute the Jews. Queen Esther hid her Jewish identity from King Haman. Once her cousin Mordecai was appointed prime minister the Jews were granted the right to defend themselves against their enemies. Children and adults alike celebrate wearing Purim costumes that range from queen and king costumes to basic costumes, such as clowns, doctor costumes, police costumes, cowboy costumes, soldier costumes, superhero costumes, or animal costumes. It is such a festive holiday celebrated with cookies (Hamantaschen) and wine that are enjoyed along with the retelling of the Purim story. This story is important as it commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia.
