April 9, 2020–2nd Day of Passover

I am sure many people are bemoaning the fact that there will most likely not be any chocolate bunnies for you, others are sad that they will not be able to spend the holidays with family and I feel for each and everyone of you, I personally am going to really, really miss Pink Bunny Peeps, Yellow Chicken Peeps and the White Easter Egg Peeps.

I found a truly wonderful article on how to spend your Seder alone, and there are many churches that have put how-to spend Easter alone on their websites. Ramadan begins April 24th this year and many muslims are working on how to spend that alone.

So Covid-19 is obviously proving it is non-denominational. I hope that everyone finds a way to celebrate their holiday, and remember that we will get through this. In the meantime call someone you are not able to spend your holiday with and wish them well in these trying times.
