“but the lord and i don’t get along so very good”
I miss Passover.
Mind, i’m not Jewish. I’m not, in fact, much of anything on that count, but what i meant was that i was raised kind of Christian. I studied my religion fairly seriously when i was younger, and i’ve always liked the tradition part. The religious and spiritual bit was a bit difficult for me, but i loved the high churchiness of it; the same thing every week part, the “i can still recite those words even though i haven’t been to church in six years” part is comforting to me.
Anyhow, i was also fairly immersed in Judaism growing up. (I suppose it’s a location thing – i don’t think they have Judaism where i live now.) Every year we would go to my mom’s friend’s (family friends, i suppose) for the Seder – as well as for the first night of Hannukah, but the Seder is the one that i remember more clearly.
I suppose, accurately, i miss the Passover Seder, as i never really observed all of Passover.
I did make Charoset (sp?) for Thanksgiving a few years ago. It was kind of my (our) own private joke to take it to Jake’s conservative family Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it – i think i called it apple salad or something lame like that when they asked about it.
