Followed by the annual Purim “Prunch” and Mishloach Manos exchange.

Mishloach Manos and Matanos l’Evyonim

It is preferable for a person to be more liberal with his donations to the poor than to be lavish in his preparation of the Purim feast or in sending portions to his friends. For there is no greater and more splendid happiness than to gladden the hearts of the poor, the orphans, the widows, and the converts.

One who brings happiness to the hearts of these unfortunate individuals resembles the Divine Presence, which Isaiah 57:15 describes as having the tendency “to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive those with broken hearts.”

Rambam, Mishneh Torah
Megillah v’Chanukah – 2:17
