I’ll never be one to encourage religious belief, but learning about the afikoman hunt certainly softens my stance a little. It’s kind of cute.
Being raised with just a few Jewish friends, I never heard of the afikoman. It’s a the dessert at the end of the Seder. Commonly, it’s either hidden for children to find (afterwards they’re rewarded with sweets or money), or the children “steal” it, and demand a reward for its safe return. This tradition is apparently for “keeping children awake and alert during the Seder proceedings,” lol! So cute!

Right? Get your shit right, Wikipedia. The world is watching.
