Greetings,
Mr. kt. I miss the point of your question although I admit I AM 2 days early.

Sorry, obscure reference maybe. At the Passover meal (Seder) the youngest person at the table opens the telling of the Exodus story with that question, the first of four. It's the question that's been asked by (usually) a child at Passover for thousands of years. It's a powerful moment.

RT, Google Pesach Haggadah for more information regarding the Passover Seder

kt-you beat me to the explanation, thanks for it though. It is indeed a powerful opening to the Seder ritual. Even for an old, non-religious reprobate like me it is a powerful ritual every single year. Even though we are non-religious, we celebrate the Seder very year with a very good friend who is a very orthodox rabbi who is quite a scholar and a very impressive speaker. He usually has 15 to 20 people in his home for Seder dinner and it is always a great and meaningful evening.

Yup, missed the significance completely but have a good one in any case.

Do you guys still cook lamb, smear its blood on your doors, and eat it with unleavened bread?

Or has the commemoration been changed with the times?
