We celebrated our second family Passover this year, and it went more smoothly, being that we now have a better idea of what we are doing.  I also was excited to purchase some of our own holiday things.  I tried a few Martha Stewart recipes, some of which were successes and others not so much (I'm looking at you, tzimmes).  It was a lovely night, and is fast becoming one of the holidays I look most forward to, because it's truly about faith and family (in that order).  There's so little commercialization around Passover in a very non-Jewish region, that it feels pure and uncorrupted in a way that Easter and Christmas just don't.
