Decorating the Seder table is an important custom, a floral centerpiece is an integral part of the festivities. Also, while serving tea, wine or passing a serving platter, a small rose bud placed on each saucer or tray is a nice way to spread the happiness of Passover. Pesach, known in English as Passover, is one of the most commonly observed Jewish holidays. It is celebrated with lots of joy, liveliness and merriment!
Passover in 2016 will start on Friday, the 22th of April and will continue for eight days until Saturday, the 30th of April. Passover is a time to spread happiness in remembrance of emancipation and the exodus of Hebrew slaves from Egypt.
The night of lettuce and flowers refers to the last night of Passover. In the early afternoon hours, the bachelors in the neighborhood stay in the streets, with a flower in their hand. The single girls stand at the front of their house, dressed in their best clothes and wear gold and silver jewelry. The boys approach the girls and give them the flower. If a girl accepts the flower, it conveys that she is interested in the guy and that he can come home and talk to her parents. The boys, who want to get engaged, send one of the youngsters from the family with a lettuce and flower basket to the girls' home.
