Young children can get restless at family dinners during the holiday, and the White House is no exception.

When US President Barack Obama hosted a Passover seder earlier this year, a young girl in attendance threw a tantrum that was caught on camera. The picture was then posted on the Twitter feed of the girl’s uncle - and it went viral.

As part of a tradition the US president began in his 2008 campaign, he and his family joined millions of Jews in the United States, Israel and around the world to take part in retelling "one of humanity's great stories of liberation."

It seems like it was a young girl who was in need of liberation the most at the celebratory dinner.
