April is here, and it's time to celebrate as spring gets into full swing. This month will be a big one, with 30-day observances recognizing poetry, Parkinson's disease and financial literacy. Passover starts Friday and runs through April 11. Major League Baseball's opening day will take place Sunday, which is also Easter, and the Boston Marathon is scheduled for April 20. You also can't forget Tax Day, Earth Day or Record Store Day.
