I’ve been celebrating Passover my entire life. Every spring, the week comes where I must give up my beloved bread and trade it in for the salted cardboard that is matzah. But this year, I have decided to make a change. This year, I will be anti-matzah. Except, of course, for seder. And if you want to join me in my boycott of this sad excuse for a cracker, check out all the awesome things you could be eating instead.
