Preparations for Passover begin long before its onset, immediately after the end of Purim. Jews clean their homes carefully.

In particular, they get rid of khamts – fermented foods – bread, beer and others. During Passover, Jews are forbidden not only to use chametz, but also to keep it.

The two holidays are based on two different calendars. Easter is based on the solar calendar, the calendar commonly used today. In Western churches, Easter is dated as the first Sunday after the first full moon of spring. It therefore occurs somewhere between March 22 and April 25. Eastern Orthodox churches have a different approach based on the lunar calendar.
