This day is the oldest and the most special holiday in the Jewish Calendar.
If you have no idea what Passover is, it’s a festival celebrated by the Jews to commemorate the freedom of the Israelites to the Egyptian slavery in 1200s B.C. As told in the book Exodus, Moses led the Israelites to freedom from the hands of Ramesses II.
Cool fact about Ramesses II (the Great). The Durex made brand condom “Ramses” was named after him because of the story that the Pharaoh had 50+ sons and 50+ daughters. Good way to start the list, right!
So without further ado, here are some cool facts about the Passover that you must absolutely know.
Cool Facts About Passover
Coca-Cola makes a Kosher version of the famous soda every Passover. This is because one of the main ingredient of the beverage (corn syrup), is not Kosher. They use sugar instead.
Jewish families celebrate this holiday with a special dinner called “Seder” and the youngest child in the family asks four questions about why this night is different from all the others. Usually, the passage where God rescued the Israelites from slavery is read at this night and it’s called as “Haggadah“.
Jews eat “Matzos” or “Matza” when celebrating the holiday. It’s a piece of unleavened bread made out of flour and water to honor their Hebrew ancestors.
During the celebration of Seder, Jewish families traditionally pour an extra glass of wine for the Prophet Elijah.
Passover got its name because God literally “Passed over” the Israelites during the 10 plagues in Egypt. To refresh your memory, I’ll give you the complete list of these plagues.

Jewish people don’t consume “chametz” or leavened products. They usually sell it ahead of time to non-Jewish people or just burn them.
This a passage from Exodus 12:25-27 that tells us exactly how special the Passover is:
“When you enter the land which the LORD will give you, as He has promised, you shall observe this rite. “And when your children say to you, ‘What does this rite mean to you?’ you shall say, ‘It is a Passover sacrifice to the LORD who passed over the houses of the sons of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, but spared our homes ‘” And the people bowed low and worshiped.
