As a child (soon-to-be horror freak), the most exciting part of the Seder was waiting for the "Ghost" to come in and drink the wine...
"The fourth cup is poured, including a cup set aside for the prophet Elijah, who is supposed to herald the Messiah, and is supposed to come on Pesach to do this. The door is opened for a while at this point..." Source: Jewfaq.org.

Being young and uninformed, I expected an apparition as seen on a kid's Halloween special. I was disappointed to not see anything, but it still thrilled me to think we invited a ghost to dinner.

When does Passover start this year, you may ask.

Passover in 2008 will start on Sunday, the 20th of April and will continue for 7 days until Saturday, the 26th of April.

Note that in the Jewish calender, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Jews will celebrate Passover on the sunset of Saturday, the 19th of April. Source: When-is.com.

eHow will tell you just about anything you need to know about celebrating, observing, cooking, decorating etc. for Passover. And if humor is your thing, visit A Word in your Eye.com to put a little laughter into your life.

So, Enjoy, enjoy!

Note: The name I learned for Elijah was Eliyahu HaNavi. NOT spelled Elyanuvi. Google couldn't even correct that search term for me.
