Spring flowers are emerging from soggy ground, there are mild days, then Storm Doris days …. pretty much the norm for March in the UK!
What else? Well it’s also coming up to spring cleaning time …. where on earth did that idea come from, I hear you ask? The cynics might think it‘s a commercial ploy to get us to buy more rubber gloves, mops and dusters but in fact, it has its roots in some age-old beliefs and customs.
For example, in Jewish custom, Passover is also a time of thorough house cleaning as a way of ensuring that any crumbs of leavened bread are not overlooked, which would be considered an insult to God during this period of time [source: History Channel].
