    Questions on a complex tale

    1. Haman revealed that he had many more children than the 10 sons.  (Daughter committed suicide). If the 10 sons were later hung, why weren't the other children also hung?

    2. On the night of  the 16th everyone was very busy with different things climaxing and culminating the turnaround.  The yidden and  Mordechsi and Esther were fasting for  the  third day, even on Pesach..Haman was busy building the  gallows for Mordechai.  The King couldn't sleep. And even Hadhem "woke up". 

    3. Esther was unaware of  the the plot to assassinate Achachveirosh that was chronicles. Wasn't part of  her strategy,  but part of  His! Maybe he let's us plan and then improves on it! 

    4..Esther ordered all barbershops closed so Haman would have to personally tend to  Mordechai as a humiliation. Hashgocha.  Today all barbershops closed as well!

    5. Mordechai took off  sackcloth in order to  don the royal garments  Yet the purpose of  the fast, to save the lives of yidden,  was not yet achieved.  (Maybe he saw the beginning of  the  end?)
