Chag Semeach

Sundown tonight begins the week-long holiday of Passover. This means lots of food and family, and an overall celebratory feeling. For the next week there are lots of dietary restrictions, but there are also lots of special yummy things that are enjoyed at this time of year.

One of my favorite parts of the Seder (the dinner which begins the holiday, where we read the story of Passover), is when we say 'dayenu' or 'it would have been enough.' This section focuses on how many miracles occurred, and how if just one had happened, it would have been enough. I love this focus on being content with what happens, and overjoy of so many wonderful things happening. It's a really uplifting message.
