Our Seder – a Pesach guestbook and memory keeper

Posted on: 1 August, 2013

Some time ago I made a Sukkot guest book, so we could remember who shared our sukkah each year.   It was a hit with my family, so this year we decided to extend the idea and make a Passover guestbook, to record who came to our Seder and all the other things that would blur as years go by.

I designed the book myself using photobook software, and it has been commercially printed.  On each double page, one side has spaces for the date and location, who came, what we ate and any special things we want to remember from that evening.

On the other pages,  I have included such things as a list of memorable moments from seders past, the evolution of our bespoke Haggadah,  some alternative questions (with space to add more), a favourite recipe and space for future menu suggestions, a list of things we’ve made especially for Pesach (from placemats to Moses & Pharaoh figurines), and space to list any new traditions we develop or things we want to remember for the following year.

Next year in Jerusalem!  But more likely back at our place… :-)

I just read this post to my 13 year old daughter,
who, like me, also loves books. Her response: “She sounds like she has a enjoyable life!” And I’m sure you agree.
