The Jewish festival of Passover – or Pesach as it’s also known – lasts for a total of eight days.
It marks the freeing of the slaves by Moses and each year, it’s celebrated by feasts, readings and family time together – plus a whole lot of unleavened bread (all types of grain are off the table during Passover.)
Passover began on the evening of April 10 and lasts for eight days until the evening of Tuesday April 18. As for people who celebrate Easter and Passover get to experience another double over lap of celebrating, this happened last Christmas as Chanukah fell within the same exact time.
The final two days of Passover celebrate the Red Sea miracle and the liberation of the Israelites.
