  1. Anat says

    Jon Stuart missed Passover seder’s biggest selling point for kids: afikoman (or afikomen for the more Yiddish inclined). Superficially it’s just apiece of matzah wrapped in a napkin, but it’s worth much more, because without it the seder cannot be finished. I believe the traditional way to do it is that the grown-ups hide the afikoman, the kids compete who would find it, then the one who finds it first can negotiate for a present in exchange. In my family it was the kids who stole the afikoman (while my dad was washing his hands before the meal) and hid it, then when dad couldn’t find it where he last left it he would start searching, give up and ask us what each one of us wanted in exchange. IOW each kid got a present of xir choosing.

    As for chocolate – tried a matzah/nutella sandwich? And chocolate covered macaroons? Anyway, chocolate isn’t leaven, so why not eat chocolate eggs too?
