Pesach is a holiday that lasts seven days in the Land of Israel. The first and last days of this holiday is major and no work is performed. During Pesach the first day is when Seder is conducted. Of course, things are a little bit different outside the Land of Israel. In fact, in Orthodox and Conservative Judaism, the holiday last, for eight days. The first two days and the last two days are the major holidays. The Seder is conducted twice, and this happens on the first two days. During the intermediate days, work can be performed. This is happening to a lot of different holidays in America. In fact, it is said that Americans work too much and are one of the only places that do not take as much time off as they should. This leads to shorter lives and less enjoyment of life. I feel like during holidays you should not work, however, this is not what usually happens. In fact, usually you end up doing more work if you do not work during these holidays. That is why Pesach is such a great holiday because during this holiday on the first and last days you do no work. I feel like that is a good way to really celebrate a holiday. If you are working during the holiday it is hard for you to really take time to celebrate it.
Pesach is a religious holiday that needs to be shown the same respect as any of the other holidays. Everyone has different reasons for why they choose to celebrate the holidays that they choose to celebrate. This is fine, and in fact, it is usually a good thing to celebrate these holidays. This is because it means something to your family and to your culture. Everyone needs to celebrate some type of religious holiday because they say that it is good for the body and mind. Keeping a piece of mind is something that is hard to do in this day and age. Besides during holidays you get to spend time with family and friends, and that is what is really important. So the next time you go to celebrate a holiday make it count.
