Good to WOW Week 15–Easter

Easter is my favorite holiday.  I have tried to write why but I can’t get my words out.  So perhaps I’ll work on that this week and maybe sort out my thoughts by Thursday’s part two.

For now, my photos for the Easter/Passover theme:

You may already know that the wine represents the blood of Christ and the bread, in this case specifically matzo, but you may not know that during the traditional Seder one would dip a finger into their cup of wine ten times, each time letting it drip on their plate and reciting one of the ten plagues of Egypt.  The last plague being the death of the firstborn.

Love your shots! I love the second one with the drops of wine. I totally forgot about the 10 drops. I learned so much by celebrating a messianic Seder. My favorite part was the hidden & broken matza :)
