Anything you think might be unusual or completely unique.
I met one family that dipped bananas in salt water at the seder. I’ve never seen or heard of it again.April 3, 2015 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm #1071355zahavasdadParticipant

After Yachatz:- Baal haSeder places the Afikomon over his shoulder, and kids ask him where he is coming from to which he replays from Mitzrayim, and kids ask him where he is headed to, and he says to Yerusholayim.April 3, 2015 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #1071357Sam2Participant
I’ve heard of the banana Minhag. I think it was started by the Chayei Adam (I think that’s what I heard) to show everyone they’re Adamah and not HaEitz.April 3, 2015 9:07 pm at 9:07 pm #1071358ChaimyParticipant
My weird family has lots of Minhagim but none of the minhagim are weird.April 4, 2015 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #1071359takahmamashParticipant

We have a weird minhag on Pesach not to call people crazy for their chumros. The rest of the year, anyone more machmir is fanatical and crazy, and anyone more meikil is a goy.April 7, 2015 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #1071365☕️coffee addictParticipant

I have this minhag where all the kids sing the Ma Nishtana in 3-6 different language.April 11, 2015 10:57 pm at 10:57 pm #1071368writersoulParticipant
Does anyone else sing that song during Lo Lanu in Hallel? Atzaveihem… Oy vey a brochtze zei a Gott a blinder hochen zei… (My Yiddish is entirely phonetic, sorry.)
We do it every year but I’ve never encountered anyone else who sings it.April 12, 2015 2:49 am at 2:49 am #1071369Yayin Yashan B’Kli ChadashParticipant
Writersoul: my grandparents did.April 12, 2015 2:52 am at 2:52 am #1071370
Ma Nishtana in 3-6 different language. I thought the pope was the only person who knew so many languages, and something tells me that pope has never heard of Mah Nishtano, so I cannot fathom who-else would be cognizant of so many languages?April 12, 2015 3:27 am at 3:27 am #1071371popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Eating pizza motzei yontiff. Anyone ever meet anyone else who does this?April 12, 2015 3:43 am at 3:43 am #1071372nishtdayngesheftParticipant
I remember being at Mendelsohn’s on motzei Pesach and thinking the pizza is not Chometz. I clearly took less than 18 minutes to make.April 12, 2015 4:18 am at 4:18 am #1071373
I haven’t consumed a piece of Pizza in over 30 years, and am all the healthier for this; But if you wish to see active Pizza baking on Motzei Pesach, get to Rechov Melech George [this year Motzei Isru Chag]:- Even busier than a regular Motzei Shabbos.April 12, 2015 2:11 pm at 2:11 pm #1071374szb1Member
I think its interesting to see so many different Pesach minhagim.
Peanut butter on matzah was one of my things growing up before I knew about kitnyot.
Apparently there is a segulah on the afikomen for childless married couples. If this is a real segulah, it makes sense because the Pesach seder is very kid centered. I went to a seder at the home of a couple who have been married for about 11 years with no kids. The bribe or exchange for the afikomen is going around the table and each guest gives the couple a bracha to have children.April 13, 2015 2:19 am at 2:19 am #1071375nisht gedaiget yiddenMember
My family peels all of our fruits and veggies, but for some reason we do not eat bananas. Probably because they didn’t have bananas in Russia. so yeah. We also have some other minhagim, like boiling our sugar and everything that falls on the floor is automatic chametz.
