my family is weird
but i wouldn't have them any other way
To make the telling of the Passover story more fun at our family seder, my family turns it into a game in which we divide into groups and are given 12 strips of paper with bits of the Passover story on them…and whichever group gets the story right gets a prize. This tradition started in 1998 (and every year the game ended with a strip of paper that said ‘Seder 1998 was a rousing success!’) but of course, every year we got worse and worse (or more and more apathetic) at remembering the story. So this year we tried something different. Everyone got a piece of paper with an illustrated portion of the Passover story on it (hand drawn by my Irish Catholic boyfriend who went to a Jewish preschool 18 years ago and had seen the Rugrats Passover special a few times) and then we put it in order as a group instead of teams. Finally, seder 2011 was a rousing success! Anyway, here’s a picture of our version of the Passover story.
