Have you heard of Purim?

Purim is a Jewish celebration of the story of Esther and her bravery as God saves His people from destruction (Read all about it here).

In the book of Esther, there is mystery, betrayal, hidden identities and a whole lot of excitement.   It’s a terrific excuse to host a party and there’s a whole lot of fun traditions that accompany the holiday of Purim.

Today, we’ll be making super simple purim groggers.  Groggers are noise makers that are rattled whenever the name “Haman” is read in the story of Esther (he’s the bad guy).  Groggers are just one of the many traditions associated with Purim (check out how to make Hamantaschen cookies here!)
