Purim is a joyous Jewish festival celebrated in the Spring. "Purim" means “lots” in ancient Persian, as infamous vizier Haman had drawn lots to determine when he would execute his genocide. You can pronounce this name many ways. In Eastern tradition, it is called poo-REEM. Among Westerners, it is often called PU-rim. Traditionally, people give gifts and food to make other people's day and party all night.
