April 03 : 09 days till Easter

Did you know that Americans eat more candy at Easter than at any other holiday besides Halloween?

An average of seven billion pounds of candy is consumed over Easter weekend. Sales of Easter candy top nearly $2 billion; in contrast, just over $1 billion of candy is sold for Valentine’s Day.

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!

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

Facts, Figures & Folklore about the Jewish Holiday of Passover

April 03 : 05 days till 1st night Passover

Did you know that the first two days of Passover are considered especially holy?

It is on these nights that families hold their Passover seders, a 15-step ritual meal in which the exodus story is retold. Up to 85% of all Jews participate in some kind of Passover seder, making it the most widely celebrated Jewish ritual.

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.
