Whispering Table


The Green Eyl


Sit down at the table, and other-wise vacant tableware will talk to you about food and rituals at festivities. Seder (the Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of Passover), Mimouna (the Jewish festival after Passover), Nauruz (the Persian new year’s festival), and the Hungry Ghost Festival (the Chinese festival welcoming the deceased): compare the four different festivities, and the similarities and the differences may seem funny or come across as jokes.
