Unleavened Bread Was Traditionally Served At Pesah
Unleavened bread is traditionally used in festivals and Holy rituals in the Holy Bible such as The Feast of unleavened bread (Pesah) in the first month of Abib which is April and lasts for seven days during the week of Passover. The Holy Bible specifically notes that the Festival of Unleavened Bread was to be observed by the Lord's people forever as per His divine instructions and even more important is the fact that the Lord says that whoever eats the leavened bread during this sacred period will be cut off from the congregation of Israel (God's Chosen).The celebration is an observance to remind us that the Lord brought His people out of Egypt and He specifically tells us to continue this tradition or be cut-off.
"And ye shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever. In the first month Abib (Jewish Calendar), on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even. Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land. Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread." (Exodus 12:17-20 KJV)
