The Dawn of a New Revelation

I was at a passover seder the other day. At passover, a Jewish holiday where Jews cannot eat any leavened bread products (only Matzoh, or unleavened bread), you have the seder, which is the meal with a set of rituals. It is also a service. There is a part called the four questions. The youngest child present is supposed to ask, "Why is this night different from all other nights?" Then the child asks why we do each of the four different things (dip twice, recline, etc.) My 10-year-old cousin had a look on his face after we asked why this night was different from all other nights. We could tell he had his own idea of the answer. Upon my grandmother asking what is was, he thought for a second, then responded: "Because we don't do this every night."
