I've attended one when I was little. Many of my neighbors growing up were Jewish.

Nope. I think I live in the wrong area because I've never heard of such a thing. Either that or I'm just more sheltered than I've previously thought.

A few small ones. All I can remember are the cookies that looked like hats.

The triangular cookie that looks like a hat is called 'hamantash' --literally 'the hat of Haman' in Hebrew.

Purim begins tomorrow night. On Saturday, I will be taking my little nephew to a Purim party.

I once played Haman in a Purim carnival.

Never have had the pleasure.

I think there were like two Jewish families in my town, and one of them celebrated all the Christian holidays because their mom was Roman Catholic.
