A compulsory part of the celebration is a festive meal. Wine is necessarily put on the table along with the main holiday treat "Hamantash" - sweet poppy seed cookies of triangular shape. This holiday has been associated with charitable traditions since ancient times. Those in need are always presented with sweets and other traditional treats. In recent years, this tradition has taken on a slightly different form. Charity events are still held as part of the holiday, and gifts are given not only to people in need but to absolutely everyone.
An interesting tradition of the festival is theatrical performances. A few hundred years ago, they were very simple and lasted just a few minutes. In the 18th century, all the performances gained a larger scale and became more colorful. Within such theatrical productions, female artists are allowed to wear men's costumes and men, respectively, female ones. Such an exchange of clothes is strictly prohibited in traditional culture. The restriction is removed only for artists on the day of the holiday.
