Haman et al.

It is customary for Jews to celebrate Purim by eating Hamentaschen, triangular fruit-filled pastries shaped like Haman's hat. Poppy seed is a popular Hamentaschen filling.

A less known detail in the Megillah, Haman also had ten sons—Parshandatha, Dalphon, Aspatha, Poratha, Adalia, Aridatha, Parmashta, Arisai, Aridai, and Vajezatha—who were hanged along side him on the gallows that had originally been built to hang Mordechai.
