1. Being able to play with the 10 plague toys

2. Macaroons / Via gify

I feel like we all thought they were gross growing up... but now I just can't get enough!

3. Learning that not everyone makes charoset the same way and having a hard time accepting it

7. Finding the afikoman before your cousins do... / Via

8. That obnoxious family member who won’t stop singing Dayenu

American Idol / Via

The point of the song is Dayenu

9. Seeing who could eat the most horseradish / Via

Not going to lie, I won this every year

10. Citing some random uncle who may have once lived in Israel for a semester abroad in college for why you only keep 7 days of Passover and not / Via

Not that it's any of your business anyway...

11. If the seder got too long you could just go to sleep / Via

I so wish this was still a socially acceptable thing for me to do

12. Always feeling hungry because you couldnt have bread, but at the same over compensating with copious amounts of matzo / Via
