Quiz Description

This quiz will have a few questions tangentially related to the relatively obscure Jewish holiday of Pesach Sheni, the Pesach for people who were not halachicly allowed to participate in a seder last month, and the leftover questions from my Haggadah 1DS. This quiz is sort of in honor of the fact that people who observe Pesach Sheni just had their seder tonight (5/21). I will also give a shoutout to ConnorA for the idea of making an Alpaca Farm quiz with your 1DS leftovers.
