About April Holidays

April brings a profusion of spring flowers, along with longer and warmer days. Be careful, as this month begins with April Fool’s Day. Then, the April national holidays and world holidays come one after the other. There is a profusion of fun and meaningful days, among them is Administrative Professionals Day, formerly “Secretaries Day”. On Take Your Daughter to Work Day, our children explore career opportunities in our workplace.  As you begin to spend more time outdoors in the warm and sunny spring weather, make sure to save time to celebrate each and every April holiday.

April Special Events

This year, Easter is celebrated in April. We Celebrate the Risen Christ. And, the Easter Bunny leaves children with candy and other things in their Easter basket.

If you’re of Polish descent, or pretend to be Polish for a day, you will enjoy the fun and festivity of Dyngus Day on the Monday after Easter.
