Oh XD it's a long story. Basically:

There was this king Achhashvaros, who sent his queen away and then held a contest for the new queen. Ester, a jewish girl, won, but did not tell the king her religion. The king's advisor, Haman, hated the jews (mostly because Ester's cousin/uncle Mordechi would not bow to him). He made a plot to kill the jews, blah blah, ester risks her life to stop him, now we dress up and celebrate purim.

Usually they hold some mind of carnival. We dress up and give presents- to our friends and to the poor- and come together for the Megillah Reading, which is the story of purim (see previous posts). There's lots of yelling and cheering and noisemakers and candy and sweets ^.^
