pesachim 109

roasted grains and nuts for children
new clothes for women
wine for men

but the demons like things in pairs...

(this page begins to discuss the seder and ends in demons. Children were given nuts and grains to keep them awake. There is an aspect of festivals to be happy, this is expressed in eating meat. or, for women - new clothes. and for men, wine. There is a concern however not to drink an even number of glasses of wine, because that makes you vulnerable to demons... apparently. But it's going to be ok! on seder night, it is a night of watching and extra protection, so our 4 glasses of wine at seder are safe...)
