Did You Know?
Facts, Figures & Folklore About Easter

March 29 : 14 days till Easter

Easter is the time of springtime festivals, a time to welcome back the Tulips, the Crocuses and the Daffodils. A time for Christians to celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Christ. And a time of chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks, and colored eggs!

Did you know that Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday following the full moon of the vernal equinox?

In Western churches, this can occur any Sunday between March 22nd and April 25th. In Orthodox Churches, Easter falls a bit later — between the beginning of April and the beginning of May. The difference in dates is due to varying calculations of when the vernal equinox takes place.

In 2009, Easter will be celebrated on Sunday April 12; Orthodox Easter will be celebrated on April 19.

So join our Easter festivities as we present a new “Did You Know?” fact each day and countdown to Easter on April 12th!

Did You Know?
Facts, Figures & Folklore about the Jewish Holiday of Passover

March 29 : 10 days till 1st night Passover

Did you know that before Passover can begin, one must thoroughly clean their house and rid it of all chametz, or leavened bread products?

Counter tops must be bathed in bleach, couch cushions must be overturned, and cooking surfaces must be burned clean. Even everyday plates, glasses and silverware must be put away and replaced with special ones just for Passover. This Jewish version of Spring Cleaning typically takes several weeks to complete.

Spring has arrived and with it comes the eight-day Jewish holiday of freedom. It’s time to clean out your chametz, open up a box of matzah and set up for your seder. So join our Passover festivities to learn all about this pinnacle holiday in the Jewish calendar.

We’ll be presenting a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to the first night of Passover on April 08th (begins at sundown)! So stop by again tomorrow.
