Purim refers to a Jew holiday which honors the gateaway of Judaic people from the Kingdom of Persia. It is a celebration of the deliverance of the Jewish people from the Persian Empire. The Book of Esther tells this story. The tale is about a plot of Haman to devastate the Jew people. Haman was the chief minister of the Persian King. His plot to kill the Jew people became unsuccessful because of Mordecai and Queen Esther, his adopted daughter, and the Jews safely got freed. This day is known as Purim and is a festive event to enjoy. In modern times lots of Purim baskets can be purchased in the market, as offering gift articles is a necessary ingredient of Purim commemoration.
