A Saturday Seder?  Oy!

This year (2008) the Jewish Holiday of Pesach - specifically the first Seder - fell on a Saturday night - a rare event (that will only happen 2 more times in the next 40 years).  As a result, there are several changes to the regular religious observance and activity-flow related to the holiday.  Why was the Search for Chametz on Thursday?  How do you make HaMotzi on Friday night?  How do you prepare for a Seder meal on Shabbat?  Here is a useful and informative link that explains why this Seder is not like all other Seder.
