As we all know, come Pesach, we're expected to adorn new clothes to mark our Exodus long ago from Egypt. In this spirit, Ynet has an interesting photo montage of different outfits to wear at the Passover Seder depending on where you are going. Of course, facial expressions and poses also differ depending on environment as the pictures relay.

For example, when going to your in-laws, force a sudued smile, carry some flowers, and dress like you were just plucked off a farm in Scandavia. Similarly, when going to your parents, dump the smile (no one would believe you anways), and dress in a casual long-sleeved shirt and respectably A-line skirt. Then plant yourself on an armchair and hope you can fade into the 70s lime green shag rug the ottoman is situated on. For the Seder at a hotel, dress a bit skanky, with a lace or sheer top over a camisole. You're not fooling anyone here either. Venue trumps dress code here. And lastly, when going to friends for your Passover Seder, dress at your finest because this is the premiere opportunity you have to show off all your new Spring styles to people who might actually notice and hold you accountable in years to come.

That's all for Passover Fashion 101. Etiquette lessons to follow. No one fancies a chicken soup slurper.
