Tell Us: What's Your Favorite Passover Tradition?

Take our poll and tell us about your family's traditions in the comments

Families around the region are celebrating the start of Passover with a family seder tomorrow night, and we want to know what your favorite Passover tradition is.

Mom blogger Kally Rubin Kislowicz shared hers: 

"My favorite Passover tradition is a song my family sings at the point in the Seder where we talk about the 4 sons. It is a long song, sung in English to the tune of 'Oh My Darling Clementine'. As a preteen I hated it. I felt embarrassed to be singing this random and weird song in front of our guests. But when I left home and spent my first seder away from my family I found myself missing the song terribly - it had grown on me, and in my mind it was as much a part of the matzah and the bitter herbs.

"I now have seders with my in-laws. I have taught them 'the song' and we sing it every year. My kids know it and look forward to it (they are too young to be humiliated by it, I guess). My husband's family has their own seder rituals too, and I love that we have taken our individual traditions and merged them into something that is unique to our family, yet is so similar to what is being done in Passover seders across the globe."

I always enjoyed getting together with my family and spending time with them. That, and Temptee Cream Cheese - sure you can buy it all year, but we never did.

I loved making gefilte fish from scratch with the matriarchs of the family.

I'm new to the traditions since marrying a Jew, but my favorite thing is making a little sandwich out of matzo, horseradish and charoset.

My favorite Passover song - "The Ballad of Passover" - to the tune of "On Top of Old Smokey" - with lyrics by Elaine Bratman! http://bit.ly/Hsq8In
