Why is this night different?

Sunday night we hosted our largest dinner together. Twenty eight people came to our Second Night Passover Seder. It was a fun and lively group of friends. There were two sets of parents, mine and one of the other guests, and another straight couple that were long time friends of E. Fourteen gays and lesbians with eight of their children! The kids were from ages 5 years to sixteen. Counting E and I, there were four gay/lesbian households with kids. Yeah gay and lesbian families!
The dinner:
--Charoset of dates, cranberries, apples, oranges and toasted nuts
--Salmon croquettes in tomato sauce
--Chicken soup with meat and matzah balls, accented with carrot strips and green beans
--Stuffed turkey roll with spinach and mushrooms on a mustard sauce
--Fresh Asparagus with an orange-shallot dressing
--Potato kugelettes
--Carrot and apple tzimmes
--All the matzah you want
--Selection of Kosher white wines from California and Israel
--An array of homemade Passover desserts (provided by the guests)
