Celebrate Passover With Your Very Own Disco Biscuits Haggadah
On the first two nights of Passover, it is traditional for Jewish families to gather for a special dinner called a Seder. During this meal, Jews tell the story of the Biblical Exodus from Egypt using a special text called the Haggadah. The Seder can be a long an arduous religious experience (leave it to Jews to complain about celebrating freedom from slavery) but no matter! There is a way to liven up your traditional Passover Seder with a infusion of lyrics from the Disco Biscuits. Since 2008 Biscuits fans, thanks to Mike Greenhaus, have been able to celebrate in style with the Disco Biscuits Haggadah.
Sensible Reason would like to share some Passover and Disco Biscuit love. Please enjoy this Disco Biscuits Haggadah!

Don’t know about Passover?
Here is what Wikipedia said much better then we ever could:
The Jewish people celebrate Passover as a commemoration of their liberation by God from slavery in Egypt and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses. It commemorates the story of the Exodus as described in the Hebrew Bible especially in the Book of Exodus, in which the Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt.
In the narrative of the Exodus, the Bible tells that God helped the Children of Israel escape from their slavery in Egypt by inflicting ten plagues upon the ancient Egyptians before the Pharaoh would release his Israelite slaves; the tenth and worst of the plagues was the death of the Egyptian first-born.
The Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a slaughtered spring lamb and, upon seeing this, the spirit of the Lord knew to pass over the first-born in these homes, hence the English name of the holiday.
When the Pharaoh freed the Israelites, it is said that they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread dough to rise (leaven). In commemoration, for the duration of Passover no leavened bread is eaten, for which reason Passover was called the feast of unleavened bread in the Torah or Old Testament. Thus Matzo (flat unleavened bread) is eaten during Passover and it is a tradition of the holiday.
