the last supper was a seder (celebratory meal during passover) and it is tradition to recline while eating at a seder: as reclining was a luxury and the privilige of free men, and as we are celebrating freedom from slavery we recline while eating to luxuriate in our freedom. so if you go to a seder you'll still see a bunch of people reclining to eat: although how much depends on the individuals and how much of their extended family they are squashing round the table that year as well!
