This is not truth, it is my opinion based on secondary information from secondary sources,  not from personal experience.

Why we celebrate Passover and Holy Week …

In the Bible; Exodus 12:15-16, 13:6-7;  Leviticus 23:6;  Deuteronomy 16:3-4 ; Mar 14:14 ;       Luke 22:8.

 

Passover…  “No leavened bread shall be seen with you for seven days,” corresponding to the seven days between the redemption and the dividing of the Red Sea. There were seven days of creation, and the Sabbath is observed at the end of seven days.

Holy Week… is the week between Palm Sunday and Pascha (Greek, Latin) or Resurrection Sunday.  Today Holy Week is observed as a time of devotion to the death and resurection of Jesus Christ.  Originally, only Good Friday and Holy Saturday were observed.

The first day of Holy Week is Palm Sunday.
