Good Morning, it's the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, and also tonight is the beginning of Passover, which commemorates the story of the Exodus, in which the ancient Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt. Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan in the Jewish calendar, which is in spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and is celebrated for seven or eight days. It is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays.
I guess it's a holy weekend, NASCAR is taking the day off. Easter dinners are being prepared, and here, the weather is sunny and bright. I'll be taking a motorcycle ride today and I'm contemplating attending the Easter Sunday ride to Mount Tamalpias tomorrow, however the very early departure isn't attractive at all. We'll see.
Happy Easter, and a Peaceful Passover.
