Passover and Easter ~ this year they are very close! April 03 2015

Each year, like a symbol of the burgeoning spring itself, religious celebrations mark the season of the rebirth of the Earth.

Christians celebrate Easter and Hebrews celebrate Passover. Both holidays express the wonder of new things and the confidence in the regenerative power of the Earth and of human possibilities.

Passover is one of the oldest rituals known, and a remembrance of a story from five thousand years ago, or more. After many generations of enslavement by Egyptian Pharaohs as a people, the Jewish nation planned to leave this life of slavery forever.
