2 days before Passover | Gifts

I had no idea what I was missing when I attended my first Passover dinner in Israel - a gift! Empty handed and horrified, I have been proactively buying ever since! TRADITION! The song from "Fiddler on the Roof" comes to mind every holiday in Israel, especially during Passover. Being raised on the relaxed West-Coast of Canada, my Passover tradition included a frantic call from my Mom, "oh Gen, it's Passover tonight, we should have dinner together!" What can I say, we have traced our genealogy back to a Gypsie woman in Spain, many great-Grandmothers ago! So, it goes without saying, my awkwardness living in Israel where TRADITION is ... well, no other way!

I truly enjoy giving Passover gifts, now that I am aware of the custom. It is a lovely addition to celebrating Passover. The traditional gifts of Passover are boxes of fruit, sweets and wine exchanged during the Seder (the first meal of Passover). Tradition has turned trendy of course and today most gifts are artistic  items for the home that have religious significance. As my count-down to Passover in Israel continues, here are a few gift ideas.

I'm wondering which blogging platform you're running?
I'm new to operating a blog and have been thinking about using the Vox platform. Do you consider this is a good foundation to start with? I would be very grateful if I could ask you some questions through email so I can learn a bit more before getting started.

Gday. I noticed your website title, "Blogger: Learning to Love Olives" does not really reflect the content
of your web site. When creating your website title, do you believe it's best to write it for Search engine optimization or for your audience? This is one thing I've been battling with because I want good rankings but at the
same time I want the best quality for my website visitors.

Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you
download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
The design and style look great though! Hope you get
the problem resolved soon. Kudos

I'm not sure exactly why but this web site is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I'll check back later on and see if the problem
still exists.

Hey there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're working with? I've loaded
your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this
blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider
at a honest price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!
