The memories of Passovers -gone by—the search and sale of the Climax—Grandpa
poking around the kitchen, making the horseradish and the Chorachis—putting on the
new suit of clothes and shoes—pockets full of hazel nuts—and almonds—anxiously
waiting for the Seder to start—Uncle Joe and Aunt Sadie were always late—the whole .
family together—Grandpa looking like a king propping the pillow on the chair beside
him—Grandma tired after baking and cooking all day but "Ma Malcha" my queen, he
called her—the Kiddush and then my turn for "Ma Nishtanah" and the answer given
with Grandpa's voice ringing out over all—the first half of the Hagadah almost over--
even the bitter herbs tasted so good—Passover it was always "strong"—all were con).
pelted to eat it otherwise we could not get the hard boiled egg and salt water—and
then the meal—nobody, but nobody, could cook better than Grandma—we ate—and
ate and then the "Benchen"—and the rest of the Hagadah—and some more cups of
wine—and the opening of the door—and the stories of how in the old country someone
frightened the whole family by appearing at that door—but best of all the songs with
which the second half of the Hagadah abound—and the feeling of drowsiness—content-
ment—and the thought that tomorrow the same thing once more
