This year we had five at the seder. This is about what I expected, since Erev Pesach fell on a Monday night.

This year there were eight people at the seder, four of whom had not been to a formal Passover seder before. It was a grand seder, the discussion was stimulating, and the people were great! Among the things I learned:

There were only four people at the seder last night, but we discovered that the quality of a seder is not a function of the number of people. We had an awesome time.

The seder was good this year... but it felt short. There were only four participants, everyone knew the haggadah, and we knew each other's opinions too well to have much discussion.

As is my custom at this time of year, I like to reflect on the meaning of Passover.

I don't have any great Passover sagas to report this year.  The seder was successful: this year I did not make too much food, and most of what I made turned out well.

Next week I'm going to present my annual Passover seder.  For those of you don't bother to read my old posts (most of you, I assume... in fact, I'm not sure if anyone reads these posts), here are my earlier ruminations on the subject of Passover:

A Witch Does Passover (Part 1)
A Witch Does Passover (Part 2)
A Witch Does Passover (Part 3)

If you're not going to a Passover seder, I hope you find your own way to celebrate freedom.

(I suggest you read Parts I and II before reading this post. But you don't have to. I'm not the boss of you.)

I'm writing this post the next day, after the seder.

It's the night before the night before Passover, as I discussed in my previous journal post. I'll spend most of tomorrow preparing the meal, so that I can be ready to actually cook it the following day.

This coming Saturday it will it the 15th of Nisan, 5768. (Can you believe it? I'm still writing 5767 on all my checks.) For those who keep time by the Gregorian calendar, it will be Saturday, April 19. As I'm sure you know, the 15th of Nisan marks the beginning of Passover, the Jewish festival of freedom. So this Saturday night, I'm hosting a Passover seder.
