Melissa’s Mix Tape

This coming weekend is a major family weekend for both Christians and Jews. There’s Good Friday, Easter and Passover. On one hand, this means an extra long weekend. On the other hand, it means a weekend FULL of family or for those of us staying here, for trying to make the holiday work away from home. This is a mix for chilling out when you need a break from grandma, grandpa and all your little cousins. It’s a mix to listen to after finishing your first Cedar away from home or your first holiday making everything yourself. It’s a mix for the long car ride home, Sunday morning when you realize you’re too old for a candy filled Easter egg hunt and when you want to pass out after a four hour Passover Cedar and way too much Manischewitz wine.
