Don’t Pass Over these Someecards…

If you know me, than you know that I LOVE someecards (www.someecards.com). My co-worker reminded me to look at the Passover and Easter-related ones. Well, they are way too good not to share. Enjoy!

For my family, the faster we get to 'the festive meal' the better!

I shall explain to those of you who are unfamiliar with Passover and the traditions of the *Passover sedar. On the first and second nights of Passover, we get together for dinner and read from the *Haggadah before dinner to retell the story of Passover with the intention to get you drunk off of *Manischewitz. During the sedar, there is a point where an adult hides *matza and all of the little kids get to search for it for a small prize. Well since there wer no children at the sedar I attended this year, I decided that since I was the youngest, we would spice things up and I would hide the *afikoman

and everyone else would look for it. Let’s just say that I wasn’t such a nice hider. Twenty minutes and 5 hints later, Ryan finally found it. His prize – a big “hooray!”

*Passover Sedar: a Jewish ritual feast held on the first and the second nights of the Jewish holiday of Passover
*Haggadah: the story of the Israelite exodus from Egypt

*Matza:
a cracker-like flatbread made of white plain flour and water. It is the substitute for bread during the Jewish holiday of Passover, since levened products are forbidden during this holiday.
*Afikoman: meaning “that which comes after” or “dessert”) is a half-piece of matza which is broken in the early stages of the sedar and set aside to be eaten as a dessert after the meal. The head of the household hides the afikoman for the children to find, and rewards them with money or candy.
