I do miss the kinds of Easters we had when I was a kid. New Easter Clothes. Coloring eggs (Paas), Chocolate Bunnies, Easter Baskets and extra good church with a killer choir, then an incredible early dinner with Ham and all the fixins. Thank you Lord.

Have you ever tried matzoh ball sculpture? Instead of the regular spheres, we form them into cubes, pyramids, cylinders, trapezoids other geometric shapes 'snakes' and everything else that you can get away with. The secret is to use a non-fluffy batter mix and compensate for expansion (for instance, indent the sides of the cubes and pyramids so they swell out to plain sides).

This is particularly effective if you are doing it for the first time to a group of people at a seder who have 'matzoh ball' rigidly fixed in their cultural matrix, like your family. Freaks them out. I have one relative who refuses to let us make them. The kids love'em.

They don't understand the rainbow hamantaschen for Purim, either.

For the rest of the meal, we keep the peace with traditional Ashkenazie dishes like brisket, turkey, potato kugel, chicken soup and to offend the modern sophisticated pallet, sweet concord grape wine for the four cups of wine. (other, real, wines are served with the meal). Tea, anyone?

All sorts of Kosher for Passover desserts, of course.

Oh, and matzoh...which I believe is properly labeled 'the bread of affliction'. (Think of it this way: If you had asked the fleeing Israelites which bread they would have preferred, they would have chosen regular, not the unrisen stuff.)

I am positive that given a choice, the Israelites would have chosen a nice piece of rye bread with a little (bissele) corned beef, maybe? Or, a bagel with a shmear. Or, a nice fluffy pita filled with falafel or shwarma...

Matzoh is sold year round, but I've never met anyone who buys it, except at Passover.

Hag Sameach! (Happy Holidays!)
