In many households, the lengthening daylight hours herald the time to do some major cleaning. This age-old ritual of “spring cleaning” is rooted in religious and cultural traditions and linked to the biology of how humans are wired.

In the Jewish custom, the home is cleaned before Passover, while Christians clean the altar before Good Friday, and Greek Orthodox clean the week before Lent. In Iran, the Persian New Year coincides with the first day of spring and is a 13-day celebration that traditionally involves cleaning (or “shaking the house”), buying new clothes and spending time with family and friends.
