For those who are unfamiliar with Passover, it’s the Jewish holiday in which we take all of the least appealing foods we can find, put them together on one plate, and talk about how that reminds us of our heritage.
Here are my thoughts on Passover this year:
Although the story of Passover is centered on the escape from slavery in Egypt about 3,000 years ago, which was before Al Gore and therefore before the Internet, the story of Passover is actually well-suited for the Internet era. Here’s how the Passover story might look in today’s headlines:
Upworthy: Pharaoh Refused To Let God’s People Go. You Won’t Believe What Happened Next.
Slate: Actually, The Killing Of The First Born Was A Great Idea
Buzzfeed: 21 Pieces of Horseradish That Look Like Cats
Those are my thoughts on Passover this year.
