The Shulchan Aruch says one must say cursed is Haman, blessed is Mordechai, and that “Charvona is also remembered for good”. Why do we say  וגם חרבונה – “also”, as if it’s of a lesser significance? Why is the longest pasuk in Tanach (in Megilat Esther) 43 words? What is the significance of the  does this pasuk contain all the letters of the aleph bet (a pangram)?

Why does the Shulchan Aruch point out that Lag BaOmer and Purim always fall on the same day of the week? What is the significance?
