3. Eradicating the name of Haman.  This is accomplished by:
 - Stumping feet and making noise with graggers upon the mention of Haman’s name.
 - Haman Tashen (triangular pastries filled with poppy seed – “mon” in Yiddish) are eaten to denote the obliteration of Haman (the “mon” in the pasty represents Haman).  
 - Some people write the name “Haman” on the bottom of their shoe, and obliterate the name with every step they take.
