    We use kosher gummy bear fish and cut off the heads. It’s a sure winner with the kids, too.

    One year I got a piece of sheeps head. My neighbor claimed it was just from the neck…wrong! I started screaming when I saw teeth…never again. I don’t think it is a mitzvah to be grossed out on yom tov! fish head is better for me. may we all have a good gebenched year!

    my mother in law told me tonight she is going to send me a fish head, because i refuse to buy one (or a sheep head, for that matter) my husband will be in charge of getting it on and off of the table, and passing it to whoever wants to partake….

    fish head. but the funny thing is, we really do sephardi simanim; fish head is for my askenazi father. this will be the first year i’m ever having ashkenazi simanim, probably a record for an ashkenazi.

    one year, we didn’t have money to buy a fish head, so we drew a cute picture of one and put it on a popsicle stick.

    my sister tells me that that year my father used my brother’s head instead of the fish head. i don’t remember that though. it’s the type.

    Fish head. I don’t have the nerve to stare down an animal. Yes, I know the roast I’m going to have just a few minutes afterwards had a head attached to it. But to look it straight in the eye? No, not for me.
