Tonight Jews around the world begin the observance of the holiday of Passover, the holiday that celebrates the Exodus from Egypt and the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery.
Although Adam Sandler has not created a Passover song to match his famous Chanuka song, I did find this great song on Youtube about twenty things to do with leftover Matzah.
There are many great stories about who ends up at your seder. Among my favorites is one that appeared in today's paper about someone who sat between Bob Dylan and Marlon Brando at a seder twenty years ago. Wow.
Our Passover seder will be abridged tonight because of the large number of small children at the seder. The only competition related issue at the seder is what child will find the afikoman.
