The Fifth Question
Part of the Passover seder (the service conducted in the home on the
first and second nights of the Jewish holiday Passover, or Pesach)
involves the youngest member present asking The Four Questions. The
four questions ask about why this night is different than all other
nights. The questions and answers are part of the seder.
At the conclusion of the asking and answering of the questions at my
friends' seder, their 3-year-old daughter raised her hand, asking, "Can
I ask a fifth question?" All eyes turned toward her as her parents,
somewhat surprised, assured her that she was welcome to ask another
question. She proceeded, posing the question, "Is it okay for people to
go potty now?"
