The Passover was always a very wonderful family time since the days when the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt happened. It has been celebrated faithfully for centuries by people thankful for their deliverance from slavery. But it is no coincidence that the original Passover celebration coincided with the celebration of "Easter" later on in history. Today many Christians see the matza appear on the supermarket shelves near Easter time and never realize that the Jewish Passover has anything to do with their Christian "Easter Bunny" celebration. And the Jews take a look at all those chocolate Easter eggs and wonder what this has to do with anything of significance.
