Happy Passover! Time to get together with family, eat good food, and share stories.

Shalom Life asked 5 of our favorite Jewish comedians to share a Passover memory.

What did Myq Kaplan have to say?

Myq Kaplan’s Passover Thoughts

It's Passover! The Jewish Christmas! (Some people might think that Hanukah is the Jewish Christmas, but that's just because they're around the same time, but Hanukah is to Christmas as Presidents' Day is to Valentine's Day--you can't celebrate one instead of the other just because they're in the same month... e.g. "I don't have a date this February 14, so I'll just put on a tophat and a beard and go out like that instead." Maybe that's why you don't have a date. Or maybe you'll meet an Abe Lincoln fetishist, but that would be a coincidence.)

As far as Passover goes though, there are too many coincidences to ignore. On Christmas, cookies are left out for Santa; on Passover, a place setting for Elijah. Both holidays see the hanging of something on a ceiling or door to bring good tidings, mistletoe or lamb's blood. And each involves someone flying across the land to bring something to all the non-Jews, whether it be toys from Santa or death from the Angel of Death. And if the toys were made in China, they might be full of lead and it's the exact same guy!

So, a merry Passover to all and to all a good night that is different from all other nights!
