Don’t Pass Over these Someecards…

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


So true!

So true!


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

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

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.
