D’OH! Joanne Jacobs, at readjacobs.com tells what’s probably an ufortunately all-too-common Passover tale:

My daughter went to a second-night seder hosted by a UC-Santa Cruz friend whose parents have gone Jew-Bu (Jewish Buddhist); another guest is rebelling against her parents by rejecting her Hindu name for the original “Rachel.”

Then there’s the half-Jewish guest who looked at the matzohs and asked, “What’s that?” No, he wasn’t playing the “foolish son.” He didn’t know. Later, he asked, “So how does Easter tie in?” Told that Easter was a Christian holiday, he said, “Really?”
