Virtual Passover and Easter Meals
Are you celebrating Passover or Easter next week? With loved ones spread around the world, many families are now using Skype video calling to celebrate these special times together, despite the distance.
With the family gathered around the table for the Passover Seder or Easter dinner, it’s easy to grab the family laptop and include long-distance relatives in the celebration via Skype video call. Or, with Skype Group Video Calling on your Mac or PC, families can invite additional relatives to the ritual feast to enjoy the conversation and quality family time. Want to lounge on the living room couch post-meal? Gather everyone around your Skype-enabled HDTV and see your distant family member face-to-face and continue the festivities.
This past holiday season, we saw several families utilizing Skype to see relatives from afar. Take for example a San Diego family of four that connected with grandma and grandpa in Washington, DC, as they said the blessings, lit their respective menorahs, and watched the children open gifts via Skype video call. You can watch their virtual celebration:
Next week, we hope technology like Skype can help connect long-distance families, so the whole bunch can celebrate together.
