I Really Don't Like The Second Seder
Now, I generally don't mind the whole two-day Yom Tov thing. (Three days, however, that's just too much). Pesach, however, is different. It's the second Seder that really bugs me. The way I see it, it's a complete waste of time. There's always that feeling of "didn't we just do this last night?" There's no real variation in the Seder except at the end, by Nirtza. It's the same thing, all over again, which is not terribly exciting, in such a highly structured meal. Ma Nishtana is great the first night. Second night, not so great. Eating marror is unique the fist night. Second night, it's just annoying.
And to preempt some of the comments, yes I know that I should move to Israel....
Well, there's always a different "shulchun orech" the second night :)
Yes Ma Nishtana sucks the second night especially if you have 10 kids saying it in three laungauges.
