Survey Song, #952


My blog today is a continuation of yesterdays blog, “That Power.”  In yesterday’s blog, I explained that AIMS testing for my daughter fell right after having two nights in a row of Passover seders.  I feel that the decision to hold standardized testing anywhere near Passover is wrong, so I emailed my daughter’s Principal to voice my disappointment.  In her response, she stated:

“Our experience has been that the majority of students miss only the first day, so we went forward with resuming testing on the second day. “

Forgive me, blog readers, but I don’t recall ever receiving a survey as to which nights we celebrate Passover in our household.  I wrote back and explained to the Principal that most synagogues host 2nd night Seders.  This is the night for communities to celebrate together, which often happens.

So now I’m curious….please speak up.  How many of you traditionally celebrate a 2nd night seder?  Could you please chime in.  I really would like to know.

To give you all a little music to mull it over, here’s a silly song I found on Youtube called “Survey Song.”  Enjoy!


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!

  1. Thanks so much for featuring my song TucsonSongStress! I just came across this today. Best of luck continuing to the most noble of professions – teaching children – music teaching – all the better. It is a silly song for sure but it is full of information and relevance to the surveyors out there in language and significance. A different survey than what you spoke of but it is all for the sake of science and enlightenment. Good luck in your blog! Jol/JohnyC/John
