Eating the Pesach-offering
Requires Beit HaMikdash
We are commanded to eat the Pesach-offering on the night of the 14th of Nisan, roasted, in one house, and eaten with unleavened bread (matzot) and with bitter herbs.
The eating of the Pesach-offering was a festive and joyous occasion, and was attended by the singing of the Hallel service (Tehillim 113-118); "Only an olive's size of the Pesach-offering [reached each member of the company], but the Hallel resounded as if it would burst the ceiling" (Pesachim 85b).
