Spring Cleaning

24 Mar

Love this article by Lori Boyd on page 48 of Spring 2013.  She investigated the history of Spring Cleaning to engage her family in the process.  Origins of spring cleaning go back to Jewish preparations for Passover and Iranian preparation for the Persian New Year.

Additional searching brings up Chinese preparations for their New Year.

How interesting to discover spring cleaning is a global experience.  I believe Lori is on to something with her family team approach.  She even has a playful approach with her “Up” game.  Thanks Lori!

Next day:  One more thing.  Leave it to HGTV to have a great list of things to do for spring cleaning.
