Esther 8:17

"In every province and in every city, wherever the edict of the king went, there was joy and gladness among the Jews, with feasting and celebrating. And many people of other nationalities became Jews because fear of the Jews had seized them." NIV translation

The celebration happened everywhere that the proclamation of salvation was shared. The people celebrated their new life and we should too.

The people around them saw that God was at work on the side of the Jews and they were afraid so they became Jews too.

It is not popular now to tell people about the coming wrath of God but, as we see here, a healthy dose of the fear of God can bring people to repentance and salvation.
