Why Are We Eating So Late?
Every year before the seder in my house, I hear this common refrain,
".... says we have to start at 8:05."
And I always reply,
"Yes, it was ME who came up with this, I just make ALL these halachos up. It wasn't the Shulchan Aruch, it was me. I make it all up because I want to eat late tonight and make YOU wait."
This year, I am going to attempt to liven things up for some guests who do not care for the seder by taking Tamara Eden's suggestion and incorporate the above pictured finger puppets into the seder.
I haven't quite figured out how we will all use them during the seder, so I welcome any suggestions you may have.
