Usually my mom calls me and let's me know when it is, about a month before last year she even bought me a dress. It was really hard. This year...Nothing. This is good, because I since making my way through the first few books of the bible, i decided, i wanted to celebrate Passover. My friend is married to a jewish guy, not real active though...at all. Anywhoo, we decided to do a small passover and we had a friend send over a Haggadah (ha GAH da), and we did a passover dinner.
Lemme tell ya, this is what you want to celebrate! We drank four cups of wine before the end of a very short Haggadah and somewhere in there we thanked God for the product of the vine. A-men.
I just thought I'd share this as maybe an alternative to an otherwise crappy night (crappy for a variety of reasons). Get a bunch of friends together drink wine and eat a great big meal, and thank God for our freedoms.
