A Passover Combined with Gullah Food in Hilton Head With a Twist

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

dye's gullah fixinsLast night we celebrated Passover at our family's home at Sun City Hilton Head. This is where everybody sits down around the table and we take turns reading from a book in which the words are printed upside down and backward. We eat symbolic food such as a twig of parsley and really thin crackers and horseradish shavings. For a brief time, we are slaves in Egypt.

It's a lot better than I am making it sound. I really enjoyed singing Dayeinu (it would have been enough) like I don't need roses and chocolate and a new Swiss account after closing a real estate transaction, just a new Swiss bank account would be enough. After many glasses of wine later, we finally get to the main course which none of us can remember because we drank too much wine. If you have never attended a Passover because you don't know any Jewish people, I urge you to put yourself out there and wrangle an invitation to a Passover because otherwise you won't ever know what you are missing.

Something else you are missing in what happens when a business receives a bad review online. Read the story of how one woman handled the incident in my personal blog today. Read more about Dye's Gullah Fixins on Hilton Head Island.

Elizabeth I'm sure I would like to attend one of those.  It does sound exciting and an experience one needs to experience.

Elizabeth,  It sounds like you had a wonderful Passover.  All I remember is everyone saying, When are we going to eat.

Sounds like the kind of meal I need to have, in order to shed a few pounds!  Especially that twig of parsley stuff.  I suspect I'll be learning more about Jewish tradition now that my daughter has been been suffering from "Love Poison" from her new guy, who is Italian and Jewish!  The comingling of families has a wonderful enriching effect, which broadens horizons:-)
