Purim, the joyous Jewish holiday commemorating the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia, is a time for celebration, reflection, and dressing up in colourful costumes. At Kiddie Majigs, we embrace the spirit of Purim by offering a wide range of dress-up options and accessories for kids and adults alike. Join us as we explore the traditions of Purim and discover some fabulous costume ideas to make this year's celebration extra special.

The Story of Purim: Purim celebrates the events recounted in the Book of Esther, where Queen Esther, with the help of her cousin Mordecai, thwarted the evil plans of Haman, the advisor to the Persian king, and saved the Jewish people from destruction. The holiday is a time of gratitude, unity, and rejoicing in the miraculous deliverance of the Jewish people.

Purim Traditions: Purim is marked by several unique customs and traditions, including:

  • Reading the Book of Esther (Megillah) in synagogue, recounting the story of Purim.
  • Sending gifts of food (mishloach manot) to friends and family.
  • Giving to charity (matanot l'evyonim) to ensure that everyone can celebrate the holiday joyfully.
  • Enjoying a festive meal (se'udat Purim) with family and friends.
  • Dressing up in costumes, often depicting characters from the Purim story or other fun themes.
