Tonight is passover.  For those who would like to understand a little more about what passover is…take a gander at this passover rap!!!  Enjoy this video….its super funny!!

Passover is the holiday when the Jewish people fled Egypt.  Althought the pharoah would not let the jewish people go, Moses led the jews out of Egypt.  He did not have time for his bread to rise, hence we eat Matza on this holiday.  In addition to eating Matza, we remember this day by having the cedar plate, which represents various obstacles the jews had to endure while fleeding Egypt.  While the holiday is kind of weird (along with every other holiday and religious celebration in this world), the jews basically just celebrate their freedom from slavery in Egypt.
