Ezzie,

The rolled up newspaper reference was from a Monty Python skit where a bunch of old timers tries to "outdo" each other on how horrible it was in the old days when they were growing up.

"When we could barely afford a cup of tea."
"Aye, a cup of cold tea"
"without milk, or sugar..."
"or tea."
"In a cracked cup and all"
"We never had a cup! We used to drink out of a rolled up newspaper!"
"Best we could do was suck on a damp cloth."

And the punch line:
"...and when you tell that to the young folk today... they won't believe you. Nope!"

Sheeeeesh. I think, iirc, if we got Afikoman presents, it was getting to pick first (if you found it) out of a bag of small presents, like paperback books or small toys or something. Or if I knew there was a new book I wanted to get and it was close to Pesach, my mother would sometimes buy it and make me wait (teaching delayed gratification--also not a bad thing for kids to learn). None of this "go to the toy store and have a party with Mommy's credit card" business!

And chol hamoed trips? Are you joking? Both my parents worked; chol hamoed was spent at the workplace of one or both parents or at the "vacation camp" held at the local J.C.C. Amusement parks? Yeah, right.

G,

Let me guess... And the Cos Shel Eliyahu was a rolled up newspaper.

We never got afikoman presents, and we NEVER went to amusement parks. And guess what - we all survived. Why do these parents think they need to be slaves to their children?

"In my day, we didn't have Afikoman presents for toys. We got rusty nails and big bags of broken glass! That's the way it was, and we liked it!...We loved it!"
