Pascua Florida Day
Pascua Florida Day is celebrated as a state day in Florida, the United States (USA). It usually falls on April 2.

He named the land "Pascua Florida" probably because the date was near Easter.

World Health Day
World Health Day is celebrated every year on 7 April, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization (WHO). In 1948, the World Health Organization held the First World Health Assembly. The Assembly decided to celebrate 7 April of each year, with effect from 1950, as the World Health Day. The World Health Day is held to mark WHO's founding, and is seen as an opportunity by the organization to draw worldwide attention to a subject of major importance to global health each year. The WHO organizes international, regional and local events on the Day related to a particular theme. Resources provided continue beyond 7 April, that is, the designated day for celebrating the World Health Day.

Yom Hazikaron
Yom Hazikaron, Day of Remembrance for Israeli Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism) is Israel's official Memorial Day. The national observance was enacted into law in 1963. While Yom Hazikaron has been traditionally dedicated to fallen soldiers, commemoration has now been extended to civilian victims of the ongoing armed dispute. In traditional Jewish liturgy Rosh Hashanah is called Yom Hazikaron. The two holidays should not be confused. 
 
Passover (first day)
Passover (Pesach) generally lasts for eight days in the United States. Many Jewish people spend the Passover period with family members or close friends.
