Yachatz is when we break the matzah and put half -- called the Afikoman -- away for later, like a special flat treat. In some families, the Seder leader hides the matzah and the kids look for it; in others, the kids hide it and ransom it from the Seder leader. In either case, the kids usually get presents, at least until they’re approaching adulthood. Then they have to find their own Greek shipping magnate named Stavros to give them presents.
