Holiday: Passover

Passover begins at sundown today and continues for eight days, commemorating the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt.

The name "Passover" comes from God's decision to spare the Jews when smiting down all the first borns in Egypt after Pharaoh refused to free the Jews from slavery.

One of the most important ritual actions of the Passover festival is the Seder which takes place on the first night of the seventh day.

The Seder is a traditional meal and prayer service commemorating the exodus of Jewish slaves out of Egypt.

Holiday: Earth Day

Earth Day -- April 22 -- marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. It has been called “the largest secular holiday in the world” by Earth Day Network (EDN) – the non-profit organization that has promoted the event since its inception.

On April 22, 1970, some 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment. Denis Hayes, the national coordinator, and his youthful staff organized massive coast-to-coast rallies. Thousands of colleges and universities organized protests against the deterioration of the environment. Groups that had been fighting against oil spills, polluting factories and power plants, raw sewage, toxic dumps, pesticides, freeways, the loss of wilderness, and the extinction of wildlife suddenly realized they shared common values.
