That was amazing!!!!!!

It makes so much more sense to me why we do what we do and why it takes so long. Having this explanation before we start, will make all the difference in the world next year when we begin our seder. thank you.

Let's eat. But hopefully not too much.

It helps to have the kids (and us) eat in the afternoon so that they aren't sooooo hungry (during the Tefilllah and waiting for the meal. A Chabbadnik told me that it is D'Oreitah that we eat a meal in the afternoon before Shabbat.
