Passover

So Passover is this week... It started on Monday evening... We forgot... We're bad Jews... We have had matzoh in the house though and I've had some. That's, sadly, the best I've managed. Very, very bad Jew = Me, indeed.

While continuing to put off research for my term paper, I've been looking stuff up about reenacting... Found a very interesting article about the recreation of a Seder held by 20 Jewish soldiers from Ohio in 1862 in Fayette, West Virginia.

Article can be found here...

I think it's pretty cool that they did this...

Don't feel bad. Mom's making fun of me for offering to make deviled eggs for Passover. She even called her friends in NC to tell them about this. >.< I just happen to like devilled eggs!
Now, neither of us is exactly religious; Mom goes to services once in a blue moon and I'm a practicing pagan. We're both bad whatevers.

Thanks, Ilana... I don't feel particularly bad about forgetting, except that, like with Purim this year, I had planned to make some yummy food, and remembering several days late kinda ruined the effect...

I don't know what's particularly funny about devilled eggs for Passover... Devilled eggs are good!

And bad whatevers are good in my book! ;D
