In the Jewish tradition, Pescha, there are many traditions or rituals that reoccur every year when celebrating the Passover. But throughout the ancient years, there have been many changes and additions to the feast. All of the changes have reasoning to the enhancement.
In addition to the traditions during the Jewish Pescha, a new custom was created. In the first century of B.C., the rabbis said that the door of the home should be opened and the father should call out into the streets to anyone that is hungry to come and eat with him.
During the Middle Ages, persecution of Jews in Europe made it unsafe to begin the evening celebration by throwing open the door, so the ritual was slightly changed. The change was to check first and see if the coast was clear of any threats to Jews.
Recently after the Middle Ages, another custom was added. An empty cup was now placed on the table and filled with wine for Elijah. Elijah was the prophet who didn't die but was translated to the heavens. It was said that he would come again before the Messianic Age. The cup was a sign of both a humble wayfarer and the anticipation of the coming of the Messiah.
In the sixteenth century of A.D., the ritual of spilling wine was added to the Seder. In Exodus, when the Egyptians drowned in the Red Sea, the angles wanted to sing. But God silenced them telling them that it is wrong to celebrate when His creation has died. Now, as the ten plagues are recited, each person at the table deliberately spills wine into a bowl (children spill grape juice). They all say that Egyptians are children are God so they should not rejoice over their defeat. Wine is used because it is a symbol of joy and when it is spilled, their joy lessens over the death or their enemies.
