"Hold on", you say. What's with the megillah you are dishing out here? Where is the Pesach Yiddish?
OK, here's your payoff: What's the origin of the saying "Have a zissen Pesach" ? "Zissen" is Yiddish for sweet. It comes from the German "süß" (note: the beta looking character is a "ligature", a new character formed from two other ones, in this case an "S" and a "Z")
