That’s my new mantra: Passover is fun, Pesach is fun, Passover is fun, Pesach is a blast, Passover is fun (repeat 10 times fast until you believe).
Harriet G posted a link to this video on Twitter last night, and I thought you might get a kick out of it. We are not Sephardim, though we are Sephardophiles (we go to a Sephardi synagogue), so I can’t attest to any of the validity of the suggestions. I do know that I am allowed to kasher my granite as shown but not my formica. And every year I do so water spills all over the place and gets into all sorts of nooks and crannies. Didn’t I say: Passover is Fun!
When I was a kid, it was my favorite holiday. I loved the matzah brie: matzah soaked in egg, then fried in butter. Thankfully, my kids love that dish, so I make it over and over and over again. They don’t miss cereal much if there’s matzah brie.
We have fun with our bag of Makkot, the ten plagues. I should make sure we have all the pieces. My daughter will not be the youngest this year; my two little grand nephews will be in attendance as well! Not sure if they will be up for the sederim. But I bet they will enjoy throwing pieces of styrofoam around for hail, the plastic frogs that we have for the frog plague, and the creepy skeleton that represents the tenth plague, Makkot Behorot, the death of the firstborn.
This is also a good time to sing froggy song.
So, if you are celebrating Pesach, how do you make it fun?
