I think that examples of the mood in Lamb to Slaughter were: Suspense- You were wondering whether or not she would get caught Mystery- There was a mystery, after she covered up how she murdered him Anticipation- You were waiting for them to realize that she could have killed him with the lamb that they were eating.

Lamb means baby sheep. All baby sheep are simply called lambs.

Killing and/or eating lamb during passover is actually not done by Ashkenazi Jewish custom. Many Sephardim do eat lamb during Passover with some Ashkenazi Jews starting to eat lamb too. Due to the religious laws surrounding kosher slaughter, not anyone can slaughter an animal for consumption. Specially trained people called a Shochet are the only ones allowed to do kosher slaughter.
