Passover is a traditional ceremony practiced by persons of the Jewish faith in addition to many others who have accepted this tradition as part of their history. In our family we have a a Sedar. It is a lengthy reading done while one is usually very hungry. I have learned to eat something to hold me over or I get cranky.
Our family enjoyed a nice Passover dinner last night despite missing my beautiful daughters who are all overseas right now. In recent years, my joy comes from watching our adult kids. I can remember being so frustrated when they were small getting them to take the ceremony seriously was impossible. We did all we could to make their experience relaxed and fun so they would participate. No doubt, they have stories of the auntie cracking the whip at Passover not that it ever worked. Though they were children, they knew they wanted Passover to be about family and tradition.
They made me so incredibly proud as we enjoyed a heartfelt tradition enhanced with their personal touch with passion.
Enjoying these traditions with my family gives me much joy. I wish for them the very joy I had last night, passing tradition to a new generation for years with growth and passion.
