Like Easter, Passover is always a spring holiday. One of the lovely things about it is that there is not only a tradition but also a religious requirement to clean beforehand. Since Passover commemorates an escape that took place so quickly there was not time for the bread to rise, the cleaning takes the form of getting rid of bread and bread products. It’s the time of year that stray Cheerio behind the couch gets vacuumed up — but there tends to be a lot of auxiliary dusting and polishing too.
