You do indeed. The procedure for holiday candlelighting is just the same as on Shabbat.

Passover Candle Lighting
Do you light the passover candles the same way as the Shabat candles with the circling of the hands (three times) and the covering of the eyes?

This is wonderful as I'm just learning. I praise God for His goodness. Amen...

Passover
Our family want to prepare and participate in the Passover meal. The significance of it is very important to us and to introduce the truths of the Word of God to our grandchildren.

passover daily rundown
Thank you for the run down. As a non- orthodox Jew, this description of daily "events" was very illuminating and useful for me.

The blessings in Hebrew
Here are the same four blessings in Hebrew:

1)
ברוך אתה ה' א‑לוהינו מלך העולם אשר קדשנו במצותיו וצונו להדליק נר של שבת קודש.

(2
ברוך אתה ה' א‑לוהינו מלך העולם אשר קדשנו במצותיו וצונו להדליק נר של יום טוב.

(3
3) ברוך אתה ה' א‑לוהינו מלך העולם אשר קדשנו במצותיו וצונו להדליק נר של שבת ושל יום טוב.

(4
ברוך אתה ה' א‑לוהינו מלך העולם שהחינו וקיימנו והגענו לזמן הזה.‏
