Turning Things in a Different Direction, Passover

Guess what, it’s time for Passover! Found an awesome page explaining many different ways detailing how to host a cheap passover.

Now, I have to admit, not being of the Jewish faith, I don’t know much about Passover. Here’s what one article said:

“The origin of the name itself comes from the Hebrew word “pasach” which literally means “to pass over”. This is a reference to the tenth plague recorded in Exodus upon the land of Egypt, where the spirit of God passed over the houses of the Israelites that were marked with the blood of a Lamb. All other homes experienced the death of the firstborn male, according to the Biblical record.”

Interesting.
