Yet again, a day late.
On Friday night, we went for the Megillah reading.
In case you were wondering, the word Megillah literally means scroll.
In its most common context the word Megillah is used to describe the Scroll of Esther which contains the Purim story and is read twice on that Holiday.
In the Tanach there are four other books referred to as a Megillah: Shir Hashirim (Song of Songs), Rut (Ruth), Eichah (Lamentations), and Kohelet (Ecclesiastes).
The name Megillah (rather than Sefer/book) distinguishes these five volumes from all the others of Neviim (the Prophets) and Ketuvim (the Holy Writings), as they are the only ones officially read in their entirety in public on a specific Holiday.
Colloquially, the word Megillah is also used as a common folk expression to describe something lengthy and detailed. Eg. "I want to hear the whole Megillah".
