Firstborns are obligated to fast on erev Pesach to commemorate the redemption of Israel's firstborn while Egypt's firstborn perished; however, the commandment to celebrate the completion of a unit of Talmud study (siyyum) outweighs the commandment to fast. In order not to have to fast on the day before the seder, firstborn children are invited to attend morning minyan and a culminating study session and then join in the celebratory meal afterwards.
