EASTER

We woke up to cute little Easter Bunnies peering out from every room, the chocolate kind that is.  They were spread all over the place.  It was just wonderful for those of us with a sweet tooth.  And, not to be left out, there were stuffed bunnies as centerpieces for every table.  It was quite festive, along with very “pink.”  And, talking about bunnies, brings to mind…  EGGS.  That’s right.  Easter Egg Hunt time.  We had a delightful one for us grown-ups.  Very fun for all.  Joan, Lillian, Jean and Kiesha all found a lot of eggs, filling up their baskets.  The guys lost out on this one.

PASSOVER

Passover is a very serious holiday with much ceremony.   Dinner, the Sedar, involves reading through  lengthy passages commemorating the Jews passage from Pharroh.  Everyone takes turns reading, and we were blessed to have a Rabbi officiate for us.  Depending on where you are, the readings are either in Hebrew and/or English.  Either way, it’s a very long dinner lasting hours.  And, we have delicious food, in lots of courses.  It’s a great time for us to get together and celebrate… with plenty of matzoh and sweet wine.
