“Christian seders” are apparently a thing now

My reaction is an eyeroll, rather than outrage.

The Christian seder includes challah braided into a cross. That’s a big nope. Not eating leavened bread for the eight days of Passover is a big deal.

If you’re not Jewish, or a guest of Jews, and you’re eating bread, it’s not a seder. It’s just …. dinner.


This Baltimore house was designed with an appreciation for Death and also the Oakland Raiders.

The Realtor will not comment on whether the owner is a vampire. (That means the owner is definitely a vampire.)

Lynch’s Dune appeals to Lynch fans but not Dune fans.
