The holiday of Purim celebrates the victory of the Jewish people over the evil Haman. On the day preceding Purim there is a fast called “The Fast Of Esther”.

Purim is celebrated by giving charity, sending Shalach Manot (gifts of prepared food) and holding a festive meal.

8 Nights of Hanukkah Gift Giving Guide

My children still tease me about some of our Chanukah traditions.
