One of the people who was attending Seder for one of the first times was commenting on the oddness of the question about reclining/sitting at table. "For a more modern version," he suggested, "you should ask, 'why do we eat so much more on this night than on other nights?'"
I responded, "It's a Jewish holiday. That really wouldn't narrow it down."

I think I need to fast now...or, at least, since we've got a busy couple of weeks coming up, eat reasonable amounts of very simple food. CP, looking at the kitchen Friday night, asked plaintively, "You aren't planning on doing any more big cooking for a few weeks now, right?" After dinner with my dad next week, I think we're probably good. And the next holiday is Mother's Day, which is Not My Problem, definitionally, in terms of food.
