A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: ""What are your fondest Passover or Easter memories?"
"Coloring eggs with my mother and my brother around the kitchen table."
Mayor Joe O'Neill
"Searching for eggs in my grandmother's house."
Mary Coulter, Princeton University graduate student
"Spring has always been one of my favorite times of the year, partly because I love gardens and flowers, but also because of holiday observances. My favorite memory is not a single memory so much, but an amalgam because I am a child of two traditions. So, my fondest memory is a kind of interesting, mystifying, jumble of Easter eggs, icons and incenses in the Russian Orthodox Church that my father took me to; and seders, reading the hagaddah, matzoh balls in the dim light of my great grandparents' house. And, that's why I like this time of year."
Alexandra Radbil, Moore Street
"My fondest memories of the Easter season are dyeing and hiding Easter eggs and as a parent, even up to the time my kids were in their 20's dyeing and hiding Easter eggs."
Kathie Miller, Hawthorne Avenue
"When I was 18 years old, I finally found the afikomen (it is a matzoth that is hidden, and children hunt for it, and the child who finds is gets money as a reward) in the same spot that my father hid it every year."
Scott Ross, Linden Lane
