Since we are celebrating Passover next week, followed by the week of Unleavened Bread, I am doing my spring cleaning this week. Spring cleaning got its start among the Jews, who thoroughly cleaned every last surface in their homes right before the week of Unleavened Bread, since the Scriptures state that no leaven should be found within your dwellings. They did not want there to be even one old crumb of leavened bread hiding in a corner somewhere. It is such a good feeling, anyway, to get the windows open, and everything sparkling clean; it is like clearing out winter once and for all. Goodbye winter, Hello spring!
