Passover starts at sunset Monday

Passover begins at sundown Monday.

If you think there is a symmetry between Passover (Pesach) and Easter, you are entirely correct. The Last Supper, remembered in every Communion service in every Christian church, was a Passover Seder.

Passover will run this year from Monday evening until sunset on April 1 or 2.

This year, clearly, Passover takes precedence over the usual run of microminiholidayettes -- and, don't worry, you're not missing much.

It's Pecan Day or Waffle Day (you can combine these, we suppose, and make pecan waffles). Monday is also the 71st birthday of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin (born March 25, 1942 in Memphis, Tennessee) and the 66th birthday of Sir Elton John (born Reginald Dwight on March 25, 1947 in Pinner, Middlesex, England).
