I especially like #5 and #6.
Shabbat Shalom!

I… I don’t know what to say… I’m just speechless!
(fans self)
I guess I’d like to thank the Academy, and everyone who made this post possible. And my wife for standing by me through all the challenges,
(can you tell *I’M* one of those challenges?!? And she probably stays close to me to make sure I don’t knock over any breakables, or start running with sharp objects.)
Seriously, this was a lot of fun. You come up with the BEST posts.

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
I'm not a haggadah junkie. I know many Jews whose shelves are overflowing with numerous versions of the Haggadah - from the traditional Maxwell House to the not-so-traditional Santa Cruz - and whose seders are an amalgam of commentaries, poems, ...

Edible Purim baskets. And, introducing...the cookie fairies!
