TODAY IN THE CLOSET:

Happy Holiday week! We celebrate both Passover and Easter, or as I like to call it EasterOver, it typically looks like this.


You really haven't lived until you've experienced the stomach ache you get from over dosing on this combo!

Passover has the beautiful traditional Seder Plate. The plate contains symbols to remind us of the slavery of the Jews in Egypt. This is kind of the crib notes version. There's a Shank bone of a lamb symbolizing the sacrifice in biblical times. (I grew up with the Lamb Chop puppet so I use a chicken bone.) Haroset is a mix of apples, nuts red wine or grape juice to symbolize the mortar used by the Hebrew Slaves to build Egyptian buildings. Bitter herbs (Horseradish) symbolize the bitterness of slavery, parsley dipped in salt represents the tears of the enslaved Jewish people and a hard boiled egg is on the plate as an offering.


Did you know that the White House has been having a traditional Seder since 2008?

Tonight’s White House Passover dinner will have a new dish at the table: Spokesman Josh Earnest confirmed that the Obamas will use the silver Seder plate that Sara Netanyahu, wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, gave to the president last week during his trip to Israel, reports our colleague Juliet Eilperin. ~ Washington Post

Then there's Easter and oh those eggs!  Here's what happens when DIYers, designers and artsy bloggers decide to paint Easter Eggs.  It's eggstra fancy!  Sorry, I couldn't resist.
