I Came In Like A Matzoh Ball

Dear SJG,
Why is this Jewish holiday you keep talking about different than other Jewish holidays?
Enough Already With The Passover Talk

Dear Enough Already,
Passover is different than other Jewish holidays because, despite all the "tonight we recline" business, there's no reclining. It's more like collapsing. Passover gives me a whole new list of things to kvetch about, which is why I love it so. And yet, like all Jewish holidays, Passover carries my favorite empowering message: "They tried to kill us. They failed. Let's eat."
You're Welcome,
