In biblical reckoning, days begin in the evening (Genesis:1:5), when the sun goes down (Joshua:8:29; 2 Chronicles:18:34; Mark:1:32), and are counted "from evening to evening" (Leviticus:23:32). Thus, all God's festivals begin the evening just before the dates listed in this table.

For example, in 2008 Passover is observed Friday evening, April 18, after sundown, and the Feast of Unleavened Bread begins Saturday evening, April 19. The festivals end in the evening on the dates given.
