According to the calendar, we’re supposed to be in the middle of spring, however looking outside at the snow, you’d think that we’re still in the midst of December! Regardless, it’s never too early to think about giving your home, work desk or car a good spring clean.
It is also believed that the tradition of spring cleaning takes its origins from the Passover feast. Jewish custom dictates that during the Passover, Jewish households must be completely rid of leavened bread in reflection of the unleavened bread ate by the Israelites as they crossed the desert after their exodus from Egypt. As a result of this, in the weeks leading up to the Passover feast, Jews vigorously clean their houses to ensure any trace of leavened bread is removed. Nowadays, this tradition has been adopted by non-Jews the world over who refer to it as spring cleaning – an excuse to clear out any junk and rubbish to make your home feel fresh and new again. The association with Spring comes from the fact that Passover begins when the full moon of the Spring Equinox appears.
