Through the efforts of the spiritual leader of the Jews, Mordechai and his niece Esther, who, keeping her origin secret, became the king’s wife, Haman’s plans were frustrated, and he himself died along with other enemies of the Jews. The day designed to exterminate the Jews turned into the day of their victory over the enemies and is celebrated as the most fun holiday.
