Why is this night different from all other nights?

On all other nights, we eat either unleavened or leavened bread, but tonight we eat only unleavened bread.
On all other nights, we eat all kinds of vegetables, but tonight, we eat only bitter herbs.
On all other nights, we do not dip [our food] even once, but tonight we dip twice.
On all other nights, we eat either sitting or reclining, but tonight we only recline.
I posted this beautiful Passover plate when I wrote about the synagogue in Pesaro; it is an example of the ceramics that were created by Jewish artisans in the region in the 1600s.  

To all my friends who will begin their seder meal with that question and those answers I wish the Happiest and Holiest of Passovers.

Chag Pesach Sameach.
