I want to wish everyone a happy Passover who celebrates it. I know folks in the U.S. will be sitting down to their first seder table soon. I’ve just had a really nice seder (we only do one here because there is no next year in Jerusalem but every year here and so we can be sure we are celebrating the holiday on the right day).
It was the shortest seder I’ve ever had but also one of the most fun: with four little ones (and the nearly two year old twins did not go down for a nap today) under the age of 6, it was high hilarity. We managed to get in the four questions with the oldest, a couple of songs, scarfed the matzah and maror and charoset but the adults had to skip the egg this year as the little ones discovered the bowl of boiled eggs and scarfed every one well before we got to the four questions. We did a rapid dipping in the wine and huzzah ok kids, let’s eat! Find the affikomen! And then we played with the kids until we were ready for bed even if the kids were still on high active mode, heh.
I’m having dinner with them again tomorrow and going to the beach with the kids on Wednesday. Gotta love holidays.
