With less than four months until Passover, it’s never too early to start planning what you will be doing during the holiday period. Preparation is the key to success, after all, and if you want to make the most of your time during the holiday and create a memorable time, here are 3 ways that you can make the holiday a momentous occasion.
Book a vacation
While you should refrain from working the first and last days of Passover, why not take the opportunity of the holiday period to book some more time off work so you can spend time with the family? Booking off the days in between will provide you with a much-needed break from work and allows you to completely immerse yourself in celebrating the holiday with your entire family.
By booking this time off, you then have the freedom to do more than just to stay at home and celebrate like you normally would. You can make this Passover more memorable by booking a vacation for the entire extended family. Staying in one of the villas run by Villatel will enable you to sleep more than 10 people and have food that can be delivered every day, taking away the stress of having to cook. The Pesach Orlando program will kick start on the 7th of April and will run until the 17th, so be sure to book early. Going on a vacation during the holidays will minimize any stress in the lead up to the festivities, and it also gives you the chance to explore a new destination.
Prepare meals in advance
There is a vast variety of ways that you can make life easier so that you can spend more time with family as opposed to in the kitchen or clearing up after everyone. For example, why not consider making meals ahead of time and freeze them. Great things to freeze include soup, dips and desserts. This way, on the first day of Passover, you are not spending all of your time in the kitchen cooking. Instead, you can spend time with family making memories. These can be prepared up to 3 months in advance.
However, if you are having a big get together with extended family or friends, why not ask them to bring along a dish? If everyone brings a dish or plate of something, you will soon have a table of delicious food, created without the stress of having to prepare it yourself!
During Passover, you will thoroughly clean your home in order to rid your home of chametz, but you could make it easier for yourself by getting everybody involved in doing the deep clean before the festivities start. Encourage young children to take part in this too, as doing so will teach them about the responsibilities and why it is important to do so.
As a top tip, focus on the areas where food will come into contact first. Cleaning your home a good month in advance to the big clean will make this task a lot easier. It also gives you the ideal opportunity to have a clear out of any belongings that you or the children no longer need.
