Passover begins Friday.

This is also the Catholic and Protestant Easter Weekend. Next weekend is the Orthodox Christian Easter Weekend.

And remember your taxes are normally due today, but because of the Emancipation Day holiday in Washington, D.C. I understand that taxes can be filed on Monday, April 18th.
