Summary
Spring lasts for three months, so no need to spring clean every day - today put your feet up instead.

This national holiday, celebrated every year on April 7th, is the perfect excuse to ditch the broom and dustpan. Leave the laundry where it is and dust another day.

The average Americans spend six hours a week cleaning their homes, according to a 2018 survey by American Cleaning Institute. More than a quarter of the population spends over seven hours straightening up as well.

This holiday was created by Thomas and Ruth Roy, a married couple who have created a variety of weird and wonderful holidays. Thomas Roy began to make up these holidays during the 1980s.

The Roys say they created this holiday in particular because they felt cleaning and other chores became deeply rooted in our lives that a break was needed.

Spring Cleaning

The holiday ties in just in time of a famous time of year- spring cleaning.

While the exact origin of spring cleaning isn't known, the season has ties to multiple religious and cultural groups. Iranians have their own version of spring cleaning with the Persian holiday of "Nowruz," which marks the first day of the new year and is a 13-day celebration.

The Jewish holiday of Passover involves cleaning right before the celebrations.

For Catholics, church altars are cleaned on the Thursday before Easter.

All three holidays are celebrated in the springtime in the months of March or April.
