I really like the part where we let the Prophet Elijah in to have a drink. It comes right at the point in the proceedings when you really need to stand at an open door and let the breeze blow on you -- sort of gives you a second wind for dessert. ;) Plus, you know, 'Lij is sort of like a Santa Claus for adults -- he visits every Jewish house in the world in one night, but all he does is steal alcohol.
Or, as my sister put it: "The Jews are just like the Irish! Put a drink down for a minute, and when you turn back it's gone!"
